Enticingly fragrant with an enchanting coloration, Aqua is one of our newest hyacinth additions and we're certain it is destined to become a customer favorite. Upright panicles are full to bursting with light to mid blue florets that fade to snowy white toward the edges. The clear blue shade mixes wonderfully with blooms of white, pink or purple. Aqua also makes a beautiful display all on its own, planted in small (or large) groups along a walkway, border or rock garden. Hyacinths make excellent cut flowers and are quite easy to grow—even for beginner gardeners.
