Organic white grape hyacinths

The Muscari 'White Magic' is a successful white cultivar of the muscari. The white grape hyacinths, also called 'grape hyacinths', have striking bunch-shaped flowers of small white pearls in a conical shape. As it opens, the cone changes into a spherical cluster. The flowers contain a lot of nectar, which provides pollinators such as bees with a lot of food so early in the year.

The flower cluster blooms on top of the flower stem of about 20 centimeters high. It blooms in April and May with 1 to 3 flower stems per bulb and produces 3 to 5 bluish green narrow leaves per bulb that remain lower than the flowers themselves. That is why the 'White Magic' is the first 'white grape' that can also be planted in a pot.

How, where and when do I plant muscari bulbs?

The Muscari 'White Magic' needs a cold period and should be planted in the ground from September to January. The correct planting depth varies between 2 to 3 times the height of the bulb itself, while the recommended planting distance is 2 to 3 times the width of the bulb.

Plant the flowerbulbs in a nutrient-rich, water-drained soil, preferably a calcareous sandy soil, but will also grow in clay soil, as long as the soil is well-drained and does not retain excess water. If you have clay soil, you can improve the soil by adding organic matter such as compost or well-rotted manure to improve drainage.

Plant muscari in a sunny to semi-shaded position or under deciduous trees where the sun shines in winter, but is sheltered under the trees in summer.

In case of pot planting, it is best to avoid full sun for longer flowering.

Combine it as a ground cover with Muscari 'Armeniacum' or in a pot with Hyacinthus orientalis 'Blue Pearl'.

Care of the muscari

Provide organic nutrients when planting and just before flowering. After flowering, the dead flowers at the top of the flower stem are cut off and the foliage dies off automatically. Only cut the foliage when it has completely died. The Muscari 'White Magic' is a real Stinzen plant. It naturalizes easily if planted in the right location. Provide organic food annually for optimal results. After 4 to 5 years, the flowerbulbs are dug out in the summer for propagation. See: propagation.

Propagation

The muscari reproduces via seed and produces many small breeding balls every year. For propagation, the flowerbulbs are removed from the ground at the beginning of summer, divided and immediately planted again. The seed can also be grown in the winter in a pot with compost, covered with a thin layer of grit. Cover the jar with plastic or glass for moisture retention. As soon as the shoots are above the ground, the pot can go outside.

Origin of the muscari

The muscari originally occurs in areas from Turkey to the Caucasus Mountains, but has been growing in the wild in the Netherlands for centuries. The 'White Magic' is a cultivar and is a successful cultivar from the 'Magic' family. She has been on the market since 2008.
