During the Victorian Era, people discovered and revered the hyacinth for its beauty, easy upkeep, and, perhaps most importantly, sweet fragrances. Since then, this flower has become a spring favorite. Not only do the hyacinth bulbs stand out with their unusual shape and wide array of colors, but they also look just as beautiful indoors as they do outside. This classic flower is versatile and hardy, thriving in zones 4 through 9 and performing best when planted in a sunny or partially shaded area. Plant hyacinth bulbs in the fall, and welcome spring with these irresistibly beautiful and fragrant harbingers of warm weather.
