The scoop on Hyacinth Blue Jacket

Blue Jacket has been one of the most popular hyacinths for many years, largely because it's both a gorgeous color and delivers that legendary hyacinth fragrance. The Royal Horticultural Society has bestowed the prestigious Award of Garden Merit on Blue Jacket not once, but twice!

Why Grow Hyacinths?

  • Hyacinths are pretty, and for many gardeners, their greatest attribute is their incredible fragrance - outstanding!
  • Dozens of sturdy florets are grouped to make up each hyacinth bloom
  • Cut a stem or two as the florets are just opening, from the bottom up, to perfume an entire room
  • Hyacinths are a good choice if deer or rabbits are a problem in your area

Hyacinths are popular bulbs for forcing indoors; the fragrance is outstanding - strong and sweet - the smell of spring!
