Gorgeous Hyacinth, a beautiful shade of pink. Grew well in a tub with other Spring bulbs and bloomed for several weeks.
Like most Hyacinths it is very fragrant.

Hyacinth orientalis 'Fondant' aka 'Pink Frosting' has been blooming in my garden since spring 2003--a lovely light pink with slightly paler edges.. Typcial bloom time in my Zone 9 garden is the first week of March. Unlike many others it is still quite a dense, fat flower even after 5 years so it would be a good candidate for a more formal bed.

Introduced by G th Weijers in 1983.
