Do bunnies and squirrels eat giant and blue grape hyacinth?

I saw some catalogs say that dear will not bother giant and blue grape hyacinth.

What about bunnies and squirrels ?

Thank you,

We don't have rabbits around our place but the aggravating Eastern Gray Squirrel does not touch our Muscari armeniacum (common blue one) though everything else in my garden seems to be fair game.

Lots and lots and lots of bunnies. Never had a problem with them eating hyacinth of any sort. Course I have crocus and lilies which they really love.

I've seen the occasional rabbit, and we have some very large, hungry red squirrels as permanent residents (bold too - I've had my toast stolen off my deck table when I just turned around to monitor the water table play). Neither bother my grape hyacinth (bulb or foliage) as far as I know, or my daffodils. I have deer that travel through my back yard - but they never come close to the house for a nibble.
