It's time to show off your garden filled with American Meadows products!
Gypsy Princess brings cheerful allure to the early spring garden with delightfully-yellow blooms and intoxicating fragrance.
Planting Hyacinths Daffodils may be the symbol of spring. Tulips add dramatic color. But it is 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 Gypsy Princess:
I only planted 6 of these by the front door and expected a whiff of fragrance, but the aroma was very prevalent. I look forward to them multiplying next year.
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.
