My first year growing Minos was spring 2009. Bloomed in mid March in my zone 9, but since this was a first year the bloom time may shift slightly next year. The photos I have posted show how different the color can appear depending on the amount of sun.
Minos is one of the series of hyacinths with names from mythology that have been hybridized and introduced by the IVT.
