Hyacinthus orientalis spp. One of the world's best loved spring blooming flowers. Hyacinths are renowned for their vibrant colours and for a fragrance that can not be matched. These hyacinths can be forced indoors or planted in groups in mixed beds and borders. Their flower shape compliments tulips and daffodils perfectly. Perfect for forcing and as cut flowers. Height 8-12". Bulb size 15-16cm in circ.
This collection contains 38 bulbs, 15 each of Blue Heaven and Pink Cloud and 8 Plum Perfect Hyacinth Blends.
Plant 4"-6" deep and 4"-8" apart, in clumps of at least four bulbs.
Full sun, and average to rich, well-drained soil. In cold zones apply a thick winter mulch after the ground has frozen in fall and remove it in early spring. Hyacinths produce the largest, more formal blooms the first spring, and smaller, looser spikes thereafter.
Be sure to wear gloves while planting this type of bulb as it can cause skin sensitivities when in direct contact.
