Other Fragrant Spring-Flowering Bulbs

  • Most cherished for their fragrance, Hyacinths produce gorgeous red, pink, orange, salmon, yellow, purple, white or blue spike-like flowers that mostly cover their stem with a multitude of florets or bells. Floating atop erect, lance-shaped bright green leaves, these beauties bloom for 2-3 weeks in mid spring. Plant them where you will be able to enjoy their perfume daily: near a doorway, along a path, near your patio or deck!
  • Other fragrant bulbous plants enjoying delightful scents are Muscari (Grape Hyacinth) — choose the yellow Muscari macrocarpum ‘Golden Fragrance’ for the best perfume - and a few Crocuses
