Latin Name : Hyacinthus

You may well first see Hyacinths  for sale in the shops at Christmas time. This is not their natural time for flowering, and do so because they have been ‘forced’ in a Nursery.

Commonly grown in pots, they come from what is quite a large bulb which can also be planted in a border outside.

This one is a named species called Hyacinthus orientalis. Many others are out there to be discovered.
