Beautiful colored blooms complimented by a sweetly smelling scent make hyacinths a favorite choice for many gardeners. Spectacular when planted alone but hyacinths also feature well when planted in flower beds containing tulips and daffodils. Flowers bloom early in the spring with some later varieties showing color towards the middle of the season. A rather strong naturalizing bulb and missing from the menu for deer and rodents, hyacinth bulbs are easy to grow and care for.
Wild hyacinths, like tulips, are native to the area surrounding Turkey and were brought to Western Europe for commercial cultivation during the 16th century. Bulbs must be planted in the fall so that they can flower in the spring. A single flower is produced from each bulb along with 7-8 glossy green colored leaves. Common as a garden cultivar, hyacinth stems can also be cut and the fresh flower placed in a vase for indoor color and fragrance. And for individuals looking for some indoor color during the late winter months, hyacinth bulbs are a solid option for forcing.
