Thanks ya'll

They look like Grape Hyacinth (Muscari). They are small bulbs.If you don't deadhead them, they will make small black seeds, and self-seed freely.

Yep. I found some little volunteer ones in my yard yesterday...in fact, I need to remember to dig them out and put them in a flower bed before DH and DS start mowing and fertilizing everything in site!

Yes, they are, grape hyacinth, i have thousans of them, been trying to get rid of a load for ages, i am suprised though that you only got the two this year, these things spread quite fast, they increase by three or four each year, the soil may need feeding a bit.

Yes, they are Grape Hyacinth. Like AJC, I have a pretty goog amt. of them. I enjoy them, but they can multiply to quickly. Planting them along borders or in flower beds are nice, but make sure you control them. I also found that they grow good in both full shade to full sun. They come up in late winter, in Alabama, in a clumps almost looking like grass, and they bloom around March in zone 7.

Alan, we bought this house last summer...I have things coming up that I have no idea if they were intentionally planted there, or if they just "wound up" there. My neighbor has some muscari in her front bed (about 20' away from where these volunteers are, so I'd almost bet that these are not intentionally placed.

Ok I have a quick question...Do grape hyacinth seed off?? because mine have just quit blooming and there are some funny looking seed things on them now, I went ahead and collected them and have them drying out, are these worth saving,and will they produce new plants if I leave them on the plant?

Mollybee, they will grow in ideal conditions, but they are difficult to get started, dont dry them to much but put them in compost or soil quite soon, but they may not strike, they are better to divide bulb clumps.
