Description

(10-12" tall) You'll love how easy heirloom 'Gipsy Princess' Hyacinth is to grow. Plant bulbs in full sun or partial shade in a loamy, well-drained soil and wait for the magic to happen. Plant a cluster in entryway beds to welcome guests with the stunning fragrance. The sunny yellow blooms look lovely paired with purple and blue Hyacinths or Grape Hyacinths. Hyacinths also perform well in rock gardens, which provide good drainage for these bulbs that don't like their feet wet. Group bulbs close together for a dramatic display. Plant outdoors in USDA hardiness zones 4 to 8. In other areas, hyacinths can be forced for a beautiful indoor display. Hyacinth bulbs resist deer and rabbit browsing. We recommend wearing gloves when handling hyacinth bulbs, as they can irritate the skin.
