One of the loveliest scents of spring comes from hyacinths in blooms. Even at a distance, you’ll notice these flowers’ intense fragrance and spikes of bright colors.
Hyacinths are in the Asparagaceae family. Introduced to Europe during the 16th century, this plant’s popularity sparked Dutch bulb growers to breed more than 2,000 cultivars by the 18th century, and today there are about 60 to choose from in commercial cultivation. Modern hyacinths are some of the easiest-to-grow spring bulbs; its bulbs are also easy to plant or force in pots. The large bulbs and sturdy stems look wonderful grown in water in a bulb vase?no soil required.
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 watering. If the bulbs sit in cool, wet soil, they will eventually rot. Unfortunately, hyacinths are short-lived and will probably last only three or four years. Many people treat them as tender perennials and replace them yearly due to decline.
Plant your hyacinth bulbs in full sun to partial shade. As with all spring bulbs, hyacinths sprout, bloom, and start to fade into dormancy before deciduous trees fully leaf out, so you don’t have to worry about too much shade from nearby trees.
