This very fragrant hyacinth, has been beautiful in gardens since the late 1800's. Growing to a height of approximately 10", it can be combined with different shades of blue, including muscari to look like a garden straight out of France! It is also an excellent choice for forcing and is shunned by deer and rodents!

  • Hyacinths prefer a sunny planting location
  • Plant hyacinths in well-drained soil; amend the soil with organic matter such as compost, manure or peat moss.
  • The skin of hyacinths can cause a minor allergic skin reaction in some people. We suggest using gloves when handling your hyacinth bulbs.
  • Plant hyacinth bulbs 6-8” deep, for strong root growth dig out the entire planting area 15” deep, back fill with amended soil to 6-8” and plant your hyacinth bulbs, back fill with remaining soil.
  • Space hyacinth bulbs 6-8”.
  • Water the planting area immediately after planting to eliminate air pockets. Hyacinths are very sensitive to rotting, any additional water in fall or winter is not suggested.
  • Apply a thick 2-3” layer of organic mulch to the planting area in mid to late fall.
