DESCRIPTION


Dutch Hyacinth, MIXED

Hyacinths are extremely popular garden plants. One reason is the wide assortment of flower colors. Another reason is the astounding fragrance these little blooms put out. Also hyacinths are very easy to bring into flower. Originally, hyacinths grew only in the lands around the Mediterranean Sea, especially in Turkey. Not surprising then, the species which is the ancestor of all the cultivated varieties has been named Hyacinthus orientalis. The cultivating of hyacinths in Holland goes back more than 400 years, but they were also a familiar plant in the Greek and Roman periods. The 17th and 18th centuries were times of intense speculation in hyacinth bulbs. Occasionally, a single bulb would sell for 300 dollars, a lot of money in those days.

Hyacinths require a well-drained soil. If they must be planted in heavy soil, it would be best to plant in raised beds. Hyacinths like a sunny location, but they can also be planted in spots that are somewhat more shady. An advantage is that their flowers will last longer than they would in the hot sun. The number of florets on the flower stalk depends on the size of the bulb. Large bulbs can produce 60 to 70 florets. For garden planting, however, such bulbs are less suitable because the flower stalks become top-heavy and fall over easily.

Flowering period: March-April

Average plant height: 10 inches

Planting depth to base of bulb: 8 inches

Spacing between bulbs: 6 inches

Light requirements: full sun to partial shade
