Hyacinthus orientalis spp. You'll get a rainbow of colour when you plant this glorious assortment of Hyacinth varieties. Their powerful fragrance has been duplicated by many soaps and perfumes. Height 8-12". Bulb size 15-16cm in circ.
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.
