Grape Hyacinth

Grape Hyacinth is easily propagated by division because it is one of the first spring bulbs to surface in the fall, the novice sometimes mistaking its leaves for wild onion, sending its leaves up in the garden bed long before other bulbs, so it can be dug in the fall, divided and transplanted to insure its bright blue spring blooms the following spring, instead of waiting a full year or it can be dug before flowering in the spring as long as it is watered profusely after transplanting. It is one of the spring bulbs, if good garden soil exists, that could be construed as a weed because it will germinate almost anywhere a bulb is dropped, surprising many homeowners in the spring.

This is very good to know! I love hyacinths for their fragrance and early blooms.
