Hyacinths are perennial flowering plants that originated from southwest-Asia. They have long bell shaped flowers with relaxed petals. The common cultivars grown in gardens today are from the species Hyacinthus orientalis. They form upright stems with densely pack flowers with a pleasant fragrance. Hyacinths were introduced into Europe by a German Doctor, Leonhardt Rauwolf who visited Anatolia in 1573. They grew in popularity ever since and are even grown as cut flowers in the Netherlands.
Grown in the garden like other bulbs, they prefer well-drained soil with full sun/light shade. They bloom early in the season and look great in pots or in the garden. Water-in but try not to over-water, hyacinths can handle dry conditions.
