Grape Hyacinth

This flower is normally used as a complementary flower probably because of its small size. I found this one planted with miniature daffodils (Narcissus cyclamenius). The grape hyacinth (Muscari hotryoides) has blue to purple upside down urn shaped flowers in a cluster that looks like a bunch of grapes. The plants seem small at maybe 10-15 cm in height. These flowers tend to be grown with daffodils, tulips, and Dutch hyacinths.
