For spring fragrance, hyacinths are in a class by themselves.
Their sweet, penetrating scent wafts through the garden on even
the faintest breeze. Hyacinths look best when planted in clusters
toward the front of a border or massed in a formal bed. Their
flower heads are at their largest and fullest the first spring
after planting; in subsequent years, they tend to be smaller and
looser, which gives them a more natural look.
Please note: Hyacinth bulbs can irritate your skin.
Wear gloves when handling.
