When our garden pros got a look at Eros, they knew that homeowners and landscapers alike would fall in love with its romantic coloration, curvaceous double form and temptingly sweet perfume. Fluffy flower heads are filled with fully double florets of pink and white. The aromatic blooms make heavenly displays in borders, feature beds and mixed perennial gardens. Plus, they attract avid butterflies to the garden, which is an undeniable benefit to the entire landscape. Plant hyacinths in a rock garden for a uniquely charming display.
