Grape Hyacinth And Squill Together? - Knowledgebase Question

Brooklyn, NY
Question by knowone

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.

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.
