After flowering they form very decorative seed heads. The grape hyacinth prefers a sunny place in a moist, well-drained soil, but also thrives under trees and shrubs. It naturalizes easily. Plant it in quantities to obtain a blue sea of flowers, or spruce up your border with small dots of blue. Muscari Armeniacum also is very suitable for potting indoors or outdoors.
