Perhaps the most useful of all the hyacinths, because its deep purple-blue hue blends easily with almost any color in the spectrum. Combines especially well with early-flowering yellow daffodils. Smells as good as it looks. Sold as individual bulb. Available for pickup beginning October 24th.
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.
