Description

Sprinkle some blue into your spring planting scheme with this splashy new number, Hyacinth 'Aqua'. Large and stocky flowerheads are doused with blooms in a refreshing cool aqua blue tone—not only do they look wonderful in the garden, but their fragrance is exceptional. Plant a wash of Hyacinth 'Aqua' in borders between perennials or pack them into pots or window boxes—having some sensational spring scent at nose height is strongly recommended!

Hyacinths are easy to grow and very reliable—it’s simply a case of planting the bulbs outdoors in autumn and leaving them to it. What’s more, they return perennially for a good number of years. They look great grouped together on their own but if you’re thinking about combinations, try pairing Hyacinthus orientalis 'Aqua'ᴾᴮᴿ with early-flowering botanical tulips like Tulip 'Nora', Tulip 'Danique' or Tulip 'Coerulea Oculata Alba'.
