Description

Bring an element of surprise into your spring flower garden with the soft apricot-orange blooms of Hyacinth 'Gipsy Queen'. It’s an unexpected colour for a hyacinth as most people think of them as being blue, pink or white. But you won’t be sacrificing the sweet scent of hyacinths with your unusual choice. The white-edged florets are just as fragrant as those of the commoner varieties.

Use Hyacinth 'Gipsy Queen' to add both scent and colour to your garden or bring your potted blooms indoors to a sunny windowsill where they can bring the sights and smells of spring indoors. Despite their exotic looks, 'Gipsy Queen' hyacinths are very easy to grow and represent a great way to teach your children about plants and nature.
