This item is available for purchase beginning in early-mid May. Shipping of this product begins in late September according to hardiness zone.
Hyacinthus orientalis spp. A mouth-watering blend of luscious Hyacinths in shades of plum-purple, perfect-pink and sparkling-white. Combined, the effect is warm, bright and cheery. Hyacinths are renowned for their vibrant colours and for a fragrance that can't be matched. Hyacinths can be forced indoors or planed in groups in mixed beds and borders. Height 8-12". Bulb size 15-16 cm 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.
