The Q&A Archives: Grape Hyacinth And Squill Together?

Question: I am considering planting striped squill and grape hyacinth together. I assume the squill will bloom first and when it is gone the grape hyacinth will bloom. Am I right? If they bloom at the exact same time I will choose only one of them.

Answer: In my experience, the bloom periods overlap. Also, grape hyacinth usually spreads more rapidly and may crowd out the squill. The hyacinth also produces abundant foliage which may hide some of the squill. I suggest planting drifts of them in adjacent areas rather than intermingling the two.
