Gardeners' Notes:

This is our favorite hyacinth as well. It is the most wonderful magenta color thats bright and vibrant, its unlike the usual pastel lavender and blue varieties that are also pretty, but can hide among the other spring bulbs, not 'Woodstock', it's the perfect eyecatcher hyacinth, not much of a multiplier or grower and a bit succeptable to be eaten by insects when it first buds up, but id rather have this one over any other cultivar.

This is my favorite Hyacinth. The color is truly unique, far from the pastel palate of most. In combinations it looks best with bright or dark colors.

This hyancith has the most intense magenta coloring. The jewel tone of the flower is striking in early spring.
