Florets are rich, beet red inside and maroon outside. They are arranged in open, loose flower heads on dark stems.
Over centuries of breeding to increase the size, abundance, and color range of Hyacinth flowers, one thing remained the same -- their rich perfume. Modern varieties can look a little stiff if they're lined up in the garden, so spread them around, combining them with Pansies and shorter Tulips. Plant the bulbs in full sun and rich, well-drained soil that stays warm and dry in summer when the bulbs are dormant. Order extra to enjoy indoors in winter (we provide full instructions for forcing cold-hardy bulbs).
