The Hyacinth 'Delft Blue' 'Hyacinthus orientalis', is a fall planted bulb. This heirloom is the classic Dutch hyacinth, with its delicate porcelain blue flowers. The bell-shaped flowers form large, full clusters on intensely fragrant spikes. Grow them outdoors or indoors for their graceful shape, long-lasting blooms and sweet scent. Hyacinths are great for indoor forcing, containers, and borders. They flower in mid spring for a 3 - 4 week period.Hyacinths require a well-drained soil. If they must be planted in heavy soil, mix some sand into the soil. When planted in somewhat shady spots, the flowers will last longer than they would in the hot sun. For the best effects, plant the bulbs in clusters of 5 to 15 bulbs of one variety, or scatter clusters throughout the garden or flower border. Wear gloves to prevent skin irritation. These plants are deer, squirrel and rabbit resistant.
