A touch of violet, deeper in the throat of the trumpet-shaped florets, distinguishes this variety. Its subtle pastel is particularly appealing with Pansies. And, there is that wonderful Hyacinth fragrance.
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 force indoors in winter.
