Miss Saigon will steal the show in your spring garden with deep purple blooms and heavenly scent. Hyacinths can be planted in containers or in the ground and are perfect for cutting to create spring bouquets.

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 Miss Saigon:

    I cannot attest to this bulb's performance in the garden, but it is far and away one of the best performing hyacinths I have ever forced for winter blooms. I have chilled many different varieties of hyacinth--including Carnegie, Blue Jacket, Woodstock, Pink Pearl, and Gypsy Princess--using the "paper bag in the fridge" method . Miss Saigon is perhaps the only variety that has looked as big and glorious as hyacinths grown in an actual garden. The flower stalks have been perfectly formed, with large flowers clustered closely together. They haven't had the spindly look so common in forced hyacinths. Carnegie is perhaps the only other variety that has been so consistently well-formed.

    Contrary to what one of the other reviewers has stated, American Meadows does provide the bulb size. If you click on the details section, it states that the bulbs are 15/16 cm, which is a perfectly respectable size.

    Comments about American Meadows Hyacinth Bulbs Miss Saigon:

    Notice how they conveniently omit the bulb size in all of that info they give you.

      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).
