The scoop on Hyacinth Gypsy Queen

Gypsy Queen is a sophisticated hyacinth shade, not orange, not coral and not salmon, but a swirled blend of all three. An unusual shade, hard to find and stunning planted with white or with dark blue-purple partners.

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
  • Many spring flowers - crocuses, lots of daffodils, most tulips, etc. - are fragrance-free. Add a few hyacinths to elevate a mixed bed with sweet, strong scent.
  • 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!
