    Muscari armeniacum is a wonderful, early-spring-blooming bulb. It is planted in fall along with the Tulips and Daffodils. I love this plant because it naturalizes nicely when it is in a happy situation. It complements any other plants near it.
    I also appreciate the way this bulb produces its leaves in the fall.
    The species name denotes its country of origin, Armenia.
