Hyacinths are extremely popular garden plants. One reason is the genus' wide assortment of ower colors. Another reason is their scent, described as rich or heavy, that is so highly praised by ower and plant enthusiasts. Completing the picture of the perfect bulbous plant, is the fact that hyacinths are very easy to bring into ower. The number of orets on the ower stalk depends on the size of the bulb. Large bulbs can produce
60 to 70 orets. For garden planting, however, such bulbs are less suitable because the ower stalks become top-heavy and fall over easily. Sizes 15-16 and 16-17 are best for garden planting. The large sizes, though, are eagerly sought for indoor forcing. Even though hyacinth bulbs are usually used only once, sometimes it is worthwhile to leave them in the ground for a year or two. When they bloom again, their ower clusters may be a bit smaller than in the rst blooming season. To allow for good growing conditions, the plants must be given the opportunity to wither back completely.
★ Won the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society.
★ Rising up to 6-10 inches tall (15-25 cm), this hyacinth will naturalize in the right spot. But it should be noted that owering might decrease in quality over time.
★ Thrives in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun or part shade. Keep the soil moist during the growing season.
★ Easy to grow, this Hyacinth is a welcomed addition to beds, borders, containers, rock gardens or along walks. For best visual impact, plant in groups (at least 5 bulbs) or mixed with any other owering bulbs. Great for forcing!
