Still-life study of Muscari plant buds
Muscari is a genus of perennial bulbous plants native to Eurasia that produce spikes of dense, most commonly blue, urn-shaped flowers resembling bunches of grapes in the spring. The common name for the genus is Grape Hyacinth (a name which is also used for the genera Leopoldia and Pseudomuscari). Another common name is Baby's Breath, although this is also used for other plants, particularly Gypsophila. A number of species of Muscari are used as ornamental garden plants.
The genus Muscari originated in the Old World, including the Mediterranean basin, central and southern Europe, northern Africa, western, central and south-western Asia. It has become naturalised elsewhere, including northern Europe and the United States.
