Pure white Carnegie has a special quality many gardeners really love. It is much more perennial than most of the group, and in fact, last year, it won a coveted spot in the top five hyacinths tested by Cornell University in several locations for 'staying power.' Carnegie returned faithfully in upstate New York, and even in the South, for at least three straight years. That's a big deal for a hyacinth.

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!

    I planted these hyacinth bulbs last fall and this spring they all came up and bloomed. Beautiful large white fragrant flowers. Some are actually blooming twice.

      Comments about American Meadows Hyacinth Bulbs Carnegie:

      I planted these bulbs in two separate containers, so that I can move them around when they bloomed. All 6 bulbs bloomed for me although one of them bloomed at the soil level and didn't grow like the rest of the bulbs. I had to discarded that one bulb away. Love the white flowers and their fragrance. I'd definitely buy them again.

      Comments about American Meadows Hyacinth Bulbs Carnegie:

      I use hyacinths, other spring bulbs, and shrubs in the border of my front yard.

      These were planted next to a clump of old magenta tulips, and the color contrast is striking!

      There are never any problems with delivery from American Meadows. I remain a satisfied customer.

      The hyacinth bulbs carnegie grew as expected. Even though the blossom was not the same as the picture posted on the american meadows web page, it was nice. On its favor, it had a delightful perfume.

        Comments about American Meadows Hyacinth Bulbs Carnegie:

        Strong sturdy stems with huge, fragrant white flowers made the perfect accent flower in my spring garden. These bloomed before my Daffodils and Tulips and even my non-gardening husband commented on their beauty. The blooms lasted until the last of my Tulips began to fade. So much beauty for so little work, how can you go wrong?

            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).
