Hyacinths are spring-blooming bulbs with richly colored flowers and an incredible fragrance that can perfume your entire garden. Hyacinths grow from bulbs, each producing around 4-6 linear leaves and 1-3 spikes of flowers that come in shades of bright blue and pink. Plant these exceptionally drought-tolerant, flowering bulbs and enjoy an easy-care garden filled with color and fragrance!
Outdoors, plant your hyacinth bulbs in full sun to partial shade. Hyacinth bulbs perform best in a soil that is neutral to slightly acidic. Water the ground well after you plant the bulbs. Continue watering into winter if there is no regular rain, but allow the ground to dry out between waterings. Indoors, hyacinths prefer bright, indirect sunlight. Keep hyacinth plants cool during the growing season to prolong the bloom. Recommend temperatures range from 45°F-65°F. Use a loose, well-draining potting mix. Keep the potting media lightly wet, but not soaked. Hardiness zones range from 4-8.
