I bought three of these as I have always loved hyacinths. This was my first time growing them and it was so easy. You pop the bulb in the vase with water and that's it. Yes, you top them up as needed but I loved being able to watch the bulbs' root system grow- kids loved this too. The blooms are lush, fragrant and brilliant in colour. The price is great compared to other places and the delivery was fast too. I just loved these and will be getting more soon.

Used this as a gift to my customers. Attractive and well-liked gift. Then, I grew one to see what it was like--disappointed. Directions were complicated and much more care involved than "just add water". My bulb got slimy and never bloomed. Won't use as a gift again.

    Comments about American Meadows Blue Hyacinth in Glass Vase:

    There are quite a few patches of molds when the bulb arrived. I tried to clean them up but did not seem to work. No root showed up after a few weeks so I assume the bulb is dead. The vase is worth keeping, though. I picked up a cheap hyacinth bulb from a local store and that one grew nicely in the bottle.

                I bought 8 of these for gifts. Gave myself one. The vase was nice but the bulb rotted away. I heard from my sister who tried it too and the bulb rotted for her. We both followed the directions about keeping it in a dark place and the water level. Maybe more directions on what to watch out for to prevent the bulb from rotting would be good to have.

                          Had a little better luck with blue hyacinth bulbs than the white ones, but it's a 50/50 shot you'll get a nice flower. Same bulbs planted at the same time and stored properly for the required amt of time yielded different results every time. And I received several broken glass jars for the bulbs, but American Meadows immediately replaced them.

                          Q & A

                          Plant With These:

                          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

                          Find Your Planting Zone:
