Description

What could be more classic than the blooms of Hyacinth 'Blue Star'? Lending its delightfully sweet scent to your home or garden, this plant thrives equally well in pots, beds or borders and will re-flower reliably every year when planted in the right position or if lifted and stored during dormancy. Plant it where you can enjoy its fragrance as you step out of the door of your home, let its scent accompany you along a garden walkway or grow it indoors on a sunny windowsill. Combine blue and white hyacinths for an elegant effect – and don’t forget to take a closer look at the glistening florets – a memorable ‘bee’s-eye’ view reveals its sparkle.
