SAVE THE HYACINTHS! — Hyacinths are the most endangered garden bulbs. In 1886, D. M. Ferry offered 135 — twice the number of tulips and ten times the number of daffodils. But today you’ll find very few in most catalogs and gardens. What a loss!

Fragrant and quaint, hyacinths bring a rainbow of color into the garden well before tulip time. Wind a drift through your perennial border or force a few indoors and see if you don’t agree that they’re just too wonderful to let go extinct.

CITY OF HAARLEM, 1893

double GENERAL KOHLER, 1878        
The opulent, lavender-blue bells of this rare double look as if they’ve been sculpted out of Bavarian sugar-frosting. Although originally scorned, double hyacinths rocketed into vogue in the early 1700s and remained the world’s most popular bulb for the next 150 years. 10-12”, zones 5a-8a(10bWC), from Holland.

GYPSY QUEEN, 1927        
“If I could grow only one hyacinth,” wrote Rand Lee in The American Cottage Gardener, “it would be this.” He praised its “luminous” apricot color, the “melon undertone” of its “considerable fragrance,” and “best of all” how it “naturalizes effortlessly” in his dry, zone-6a Santa Fe garden. 10-12”, zones 5a-8a(10bWC), from Holland. Chart & care.

double MADAME SOPHIE, 1929        
An intricately carved ivory relic, a flurry of fat snowflakes, a bed piled high with down pillows – that’s double ‘Madame Sophie’. How can white look so voluptuous? 10-12”, zones 5a-8a(10bWC), from Holland. Chart & care.

MARIE, 1860        Rarest
Our customers love ‘Marie.’ A deep, rich indigo purple, it’s the oldest traditional hyacinth still grown in Dutch bulb fields today – and superb. Of the 84 hyacinths offered in Vaughan’s 1897 catalog, only two survive: ‘King of the Blues’ and even older, darker ‘Marie’. 10-12”, zones 5a-8a(10bWC), from Holland. Chart & care.

ROMAN BLUE, 1562        Rarest
One of our most sought-after bulbs, this graceful, cinnamon-scented wildflower multiplies happily year after year. It’s been passed along since colonial days, and though counterfeits are rife, ours from the Hortus Bulborum are 100% true. Slightly less cold-hardy than regular hyacinths: zones 6a-8a(10bWC), 8-10”. Chart & care.

ROMAN PINK, 1573        Rarest
Cinnamon-scented and multiplying eagerly year after year, this pale pink cousin of our ‘Roman Blue’, is equally wonderful. Like all Romans it’s a little less cold-hardy than other hyacinths, but its wildflowery grace and rich fragrance can’t be beat. And did we mention it multiplies? 8-10”, zones 6a-8a(10bWC), from the Hortus Bulborum. Chart & care.
