Hyacinthus is a small genus of bulbous flowering plants in the family Asparagaceae, subfamily Scilloideae. To grow Hyacinth flower actually perfume the room, than they do in gardens. The leaves, which seem to stick around forever, are quite unsightly, and even the flower heads, look rather lumpy among the more dainty shapes of the other bulbs. However, grown with something to soften them, such as a sea of forget me nots or blue flowering periwinkle; they’re not hard to take. It is highly recommended Hyacinth bulbs are planted in the fall and borne in spring. The Victorians revered hyacinths for their sweet, lingering fragrance, and prudently massed them in low beds, planting in rows of one color each. These flowers need indirect sunlight and should be watered moderately.

 The flower heads become less thick as years go by an improvement, there are hyacinths you can grow besides Hyacinthus orientalis, from which the big Dutch cultivars are commonly derived.  So try Roman hyacinth in blue, pink and white. Roman hyacinth has a looser luster but more stems per plant. Moreover, the common hyacinth is hardy, but you can still try it north of there if you give it some winter protection and plant it fairly deep. So keep in mind that Hyacinth bulbs are poisonous; they contain oxalic acid and handling hyacinth bulbs can cause mild skin irritation. Protective gloves are highly recommended.

If you want to grow north plant hyacinths as early in fall as possible; in warm areas refrigerate the bulbs for a few weeks and plant in late fall. They like a sandy loam of moderate fertility that is moist but very well drained. So grow in full sun or light shade. Moreover, plant the large bulbs at least five inches deep and six inches apart, trying to make the effect of natural groupings to offset the rather stiff bearing of the leaves and flowers. Thus, after plants are finished flowering in spring, cut back flower stalks but let the leaves to die back naturally.
