What Do You Know About Hyacinths ?

Hyacinth 101

Hyacinth - Title

Grape hyacinths, also famous as Muscari, are interconnected assortments that are much smaller. They have a gentle sweet scent.

Dutch hyacinths are cone shaped with abundant florets crowded on the stem. A fresh hyacinth has the majority of its florets closed, with just a few openings on the base. They have strong color and the scent is charming. Older hyacinths on the other hand have a good number of their florets open. Their color is faded and they have a very strong fragrance.

Hyacinths have a solid, tough base. That’s the white component of the stem and it must be cut off before placing the hyacinths inside water. The water then easily breaks through and penetrates the stems to get to the flowers. The ideal way to truly appreciate this flower is to put one hyacinth bulb in a glass of water.
