Despite the frost this past Tuesday that threatened to damage my gardens - my Grape Hyacinths are blooming beautifully.
As stated in Better Homes and Gardens Plant Encyclopedia:
Grape hyacinths paint the landscape in stunning shades of blue, purple, white, and yellow in spring -- and they add the sweet scent of grape bubblegum to boot. These easy-care bulbs are frequently mass-planted to create a river effect in borders. Their tranquil color scheme is a good background for the gaudier blooms of tulips. These undemanding small bulbs spread easily in any well-drained garden soil. Try the species or special cultivars such as 'Blue Spike' for container plantings or along walkways.
