Grape Hyacinth

 Do not Feed
  • Common Name: Grape Hyacinth
  • Latin Name: Muscari spp.
  • Family Name: Liliaceae/Hyacinthaceae
The bulb of the grape hyacinth contains comisic acid, which acts on the body like the toxin saponin and can cause diarrhoea and sickness.  It should not be fed to tortoises or grown in their enclosures.  Although primarily grown as a cultivated garden plant, in some areas it has escaped and is found in the wild.  See Hyacinth.
