Grape Hyacinth

The grape hyacinth is a member of the Asparagaceae group of plants, and is distinctive for its heavy, dense flowers, which resemble berries or grapes, as suggested by its name. These plants are relatively small in stature, but they pack a big impact in terms of color. Their searing blue is a beautiful offset to the many pink, white, and yellow flowers found in the Conservatory Garden. These plants grow from bulbs, making them easy to maintain from year to year. They bloom each spring, and though they only show their petals for a few weeks, they are one of the most memorable plants in the park.
