Muscari latifolium - no fuss, no muss.
The more common Muscari armeniacum (Grape Hyacinth) has delightful wee grape-cluster flowers, but all that FOLIAGE...it's like a green mop (physiologically speaking, that's an awful lot of leaves to produce such a little flower).
May I introduce you to Muscari latifolium - cute two-tone flower, and just one leaf per flower stem. Now that's efficient. You can get 500 of them for $140 at Brent and Becky's Bulbs. Or 10 for $4.30. Eh, go for the 500.
