Hyacinthus orientalis 'Delft Blue'
Porcelain-blue, star-shaped flowers crowd the upright flower spike in spring, filling the surrounding air with their sweet perfume...
Back in the Autumn I planted a bunch of Hyacinthus orientalis 'Delft Blue' bulbs down my side path, having never grown them before I was surprised how amazing they smelled! I would wander down the path just to smell them, so later this year I plan on adding them to other areas of my garden..
