Description

For really deep blue garden flowers, we can recommend the occasional bedding plant, or perhaps summer delphiniums—but for spring, your best choice is Hyacinth 'Peter Stuyvesant'. It's a deep, dark violet-blue, with an absolutely stunning, sweet fragrance. It is also an excellent choice for mixing with early to mid-flowering daffodils and tulips. It performs equally well in containers, pots, or the front of the garden border—in full sun or part-shade. Grow it anywhere that you will be able to enjoy its wonderful fragrance.  

The flower stems of Hyacinth orientalis 'Peter Stuyvesant' are perfectly able to support the multitude of blooms they carry—for perhaps as much as five or even six weeks in an optimum season. This hyacinth is best planted in early autumn, straight into the garden soil, or outdoor containers and, for best effect, in clusters of five. Incidentally, this hyacinth is named after the Dutch colonial officer Peter Stuyvesant, who served as the last Dutch director general of New Netherlands—the area we now know as the US states of New York and New Jersey.
