For each offer ordered, get 5Breathe life into your flower garden with Jan Bos Hyacinths. The buds open between early and mid spring to reveal spikes of densely packed carmine red to hot pink florets, which are shaped like tiny stars. The tall and straight hyacinth flowers complement an area of smaller and wider daffodils interspersed among gentle crocus flowers. Liven up your spring beds with their vivid colour and sweet fragrance.
These perennials flourish in a hardiness zone between 4 and 8. These Dutch hyacinths are very low maintenance, and they do well in both sunny and semi-shaded areas. Prepare a spot of well-drained sandy, loamy or clay soil and plant your hyacinth bulbs about 6 inches deep and 6 inches apart. Water regularly during dry seasons. Your Jan Bos hyacinths will reach a height of 8 to 10 inches and bloom in early spring.
These hyacinth flowers are very fragrant, so they are especially nice for a window flower garden. They can be forced to bloom indoors during the winter for an off-season treat. Just one or two stalks can fill an entire house with a sweet aroma. Outdoors, in addition to your flower garden, try planting them along your porch, patio, walkway or path. Stimulate your senses with these deluxe hyacinth bulbs.
