Muscari armeniacum
Grape Hyacinth

The foliage of Grape Hyacinth is evergreen in the Winter, elongates in Spring, dies back in early Summer, returns in late Summer, and has a Lilyturf-like appearance in the Autumn and Winter. One advantage of this growth cycle and its slow spread is that it can be used to line walkways through naturalized areas in Winter, when its evergreen foliage pops above the leaves and light snow cover.
