A mélange of four hyacinths in pastel shades. They are easy on the eye, and their sweet perfume is the toast of spring. In much of the country, hyacinths provide the first real fragrance of the year. No garden should be without them. Introduced 2007.  Sold as individual bulb. Available for pickup beginning October 12th.

 

Hyacinths need at least a half-day of sun to flower well and store up enough energy for the following spring’s display. They grow in any well-drained soil. The flower heads are at their largest and fullest the first spring after planting; in subsequent years the flowers tend to be more loose and informal.

 

Note: Hyacinth bulbs can irritate your skin. Wear gloves when handling and plan on showering soon after planting.
