Description
Daffodils may be the symbol of spring. Tulips add dramatic color. But its the hyacinths that bring the perfume. One of the most powerfully fragranced blooms in the flower kingdom is the justly famous Dutch hyacinth--the result of hundreds of years of hybridizing a lovely little wildflower from Turkey--now an upright torch of incredible color and unmatched perfume.

Plant your hyacinth bulbs close together for a dramatic display, either in groups of one color or as a rainbow of several shades. Many gardeners think they look best in close groups of 3, 5 or more. Hyacinths must have good drainage, so be sure to plant them where they'll never be in standing water. With some shade, the flowers will last longer than in full sun. And next spring, don't forget to stop and smell the hyacinths!

      Comments about American Meadows Hyacinth Bulbs Jan Bos - Bag of 6:

      Very beautiful, only the ones I received are more of a bright hot pink color, not red. I love them though. The reason I rated 4 stars was just because the color wasn't accurate. The quality is a 5 star rating.

        Comments about American Meadows Hyacinth Bulbs Jan Bos - Bag of 6:

        Lipstick red? not really a deep pink for sure. I ordered
        24 Bulbs and planted last Fall but only TEN appeared this
        Spring........very disapointing. I am a retired landscaper so I do know how to correctly plant/grow.
