Hyacinth problem?

Sundance, WY(Zone 3b)

Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this. My hyacinths seem to always bloom with the flowers down next to the ground, right at the base of the leaves. They never get very tall, so are hard to see since they don't seem to rise above the leaves. They have done this for a couple of years now, since I have planted them. Is this just something that happens sometimes, or am I doing something wrong, or need to amend my ground more, or??? We have really bad clay and rocky soil, and I spend a lot of time trying to get better dirt, adding compost and aged manure, but our ground is so bad that after several years of doing this, it still is awful, lol! Don't know where all that manure goes, but you can't even tell I've added 6 inches several times a year for a couple of years! Should I fertilize them maybe? I'm open for any ideas and suggestions!
