I have spring crocus that are blooming now and leaves of muscari (grape hyancinths) six inches high!

Does anyone know if they will bloom again in the spring? Should I cut down the leaves of the muscari? I'm afraid they won't bloom properly in the spring.

Dont cut them down.

My Muscari always puts up new leaf growth in the fall.

Years ago I read about using Muscari's fall growth to indicate where tulips (or other bulbs) are planted. When planting any other bulbs, simply plant a few muscari above them. However, muscari multiply quickly, squirrels and chipmunks move them around and in a few years, muscari have filled my flower beds and hugely outnumber anything planted under them!
