If you love color, this is your mixture. And remember, 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!

        These stunning beauties splash my outdoor canvas with a punch of vibrant colors, ones that are my favorites. Planning and planting my two and a half acre property on my own, I am quite pleased with the results from my wildflower bed to the more contained garden areas. My daughter's are doing well also.

            Planted these bulb in November of 2011. In March of 2012 we have absolutely beautiful flowers. All of the bulbs bloomed with huge mature flowers. Ours look better than our neighbors who have had theirs in for several years.

            I'm highly satisfied and would purchase this again.

                I bought one package last year to see if they would grow and couldn't believe the fragrance. So this year bought more to plant next to our walk way so we can enjoy the aroma all the way to our front door.

                        I have these in pots as well as in the garden - they are fragrant and lovely to look at. Cool colors that look serene in shade mixed with ferns and white hyacinths too! Every bulb I planted came up!

                        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:
