Gorgeous lavender and indigo blooms, the Fragrant Baby Blue Hyacinth (Hyacinthus 'Baby Blue') will send your garden into the great blue yonder with tightly packed florets of the most wondrous shades of true blue and ever! Aging to reveal touches of lavender! This country French to shabby chic blue is especially eye-catching because it arrives almost immediately after the snows of winter recede!

Baby Blue Hyacinth bulbs start as vertical clumps of strappy pointed foliage that slowly, politely naturalize into groupings throughout the sun garden. Hyacinths are adaptable spring-flowering blooms that are lovely in bouquets! Did we mention the divine perfume? Fragrant Baby Blue sure is! They will perfume your indoor spaces - especially since you can force these bulbs indoors for perfumed winter décor! Outdoors of course Hyacinths feed some of the earliest emerging pollinators and hummingbirds!

Baby Blue Hyacinths are hardy and low-maintenance throughout USDA growing zones 4 to 9 and shine in the full sun. These fast-growing little perennial bulbs are among the first to arrive on the scene! Rising 8-12 inches when in bloom on fat stems to support those glorious clusters of starry florets.

Planting and Application:

Perfectly sized to tuck into your planters and patio pots. Indoors, you can force these easy-to-grow bulbs in a shallow dish or container for winter décor! These space-saving perennial bulbs grow about anywhere in the sun or bright indoor light. Use Fragrant Baby Blue Hyacinth for rows as edging, grouped in clusters, or in drifts for a magnificent mass display. You and all your neighbors will love them either way! Hyacinths multiply rapidly yet politely, so are an excellent selection for naturalizing!

Hyacinth looks lovely when you fill planters and porch pots with their beauty, and create unique window box displays or container gardens of similar-colored blooms on the porch or patio. Plant throughout your Rock gardens, Cottage borders, mixed bulb gardens, and Perennial beds. Also perfectly sized for indoor gardening, forcing, as gifts, and balconies!

  • Dreamy Indigo-Sky Blue Flower Clusters
  • Vertical Growth & Pointed Green Foliage Clumps
  • Incredibly Fragrant Cut Flowers & Indoor Forced Winter Décor
  • Pollinator Friendly & Easy to Grow!
  • Spring Accents, Beds & Borders, En Masse & Containers

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Plant your Hyacinths in full or partial sun in the fall for spring blooms with the strongest stems! Fall-planted bulbs need well-drained soil with moderate moisture needs. Any soil type is suitable so long as it is not soggy and add bulb fertilizer to each hole for best results. Deadhead after flowers fade, but let the leaves remain so they can make food for the bulb and next year's flowers! Once the foliage yellows in the summer or fall, you can then prune it to the ground.

  • Full Sun For Strongest Growth
  • Well-Drained Soil
  • Moderate Moisture Needs
  • Deadhead After Flowers Fade & Prune Mounds After Leaves Yellow
  • Deer Seldom Bother Them
