Named after the 'Avenue of Lights' in Fort Worth, Texas, this eclectic blend of rich wine-colored Miss Saigon Hyacinth and gentian-blue scilla siberica combines two popular colors and forms into one fantastic mix. We love how the hyacinths form pops of color across the sea of blue when planted in mass groupings. Avenue of Light Mix is sure to become a sought-after addition to borders, beds or pots. Both of these marvelously compact plants are fast and easy to grow, ideal for filling in bare landscape spots with their glorious colors and attractive forms. The hyacinths are fragrant, giving the area another level of charm.
