Hyacinthus orientalis ‘Pink Pearl’ is a favourite hyacinth for raising in pots indoors for winter colour and fragrance. It bears bright pink flowers with an intense fragrance. It’s also suitable for growing outside and looks particularly good planted in the spring border where it combines well with spring-flowering primulas and pulmonarias. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
