hyacinth delft blue hyacinthus orientalis
Porcelain-blue, star-shaped flowers crowd the upright flower spike in spring, filling the surrounding air with their sweet perfume. A wonderful addition to pots and window-boxes, it also looks lovely planted in clumps or drifts throughout the border. Plant it near a pathway or entrance, so the scent can best be appreciated.
Hyacinth Delft Blue is by far the most popular variety to buy for both landscaping and garden displays.
Plant with a range of Spring bedding plants or in formal beds for a rich colourful display during the course of Spring.
