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..

'Delft Blue' is a bulbous perennial to 30cm in height, with glossy green leaves and shapely spike-like racemes of fragrant, soft mid-blue flowers

What you need to know...
Plant 10cm deep in autumn in any moderately fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil.

Propagate by removing offsets when dormant in summer
