The Hyacinth 'Pink Pearl', 'Hyacinthus orientalis', is a fall planted bulb. A pearly sheen covers each deep pink flower, making it almost iridescent. The small flowers are clustered on intensely fragrant spikes. Grow them in or outdoors 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.
