Hyacinthus orientalis 'Royal Navy'

Plant details

Hyacinths are a popular choice for growing in pots indoors for a burst of colour and fragrance in spring. But they are equally valuable as outdoor plants, planted in autumn as with other spring-flowering bulbs. 

Hyacinthus orientalis 'Royal Navy' bears dark blue double flowers with a very intense fragrance. It's ideal for forcing for use indoors over winter, or planted in the spring border where it combines well with spring-flowering primulas and pulmonarias.

Hyacinth bulbs can irritate the skin, so wear gloves when handling them.
