  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April
  • Flower colour: deep magenta

    A fabulous hyacinth with deep magenta-purple blooms that are delicately scented. Plant in mixed beds in the garden or in pots on the patio so you can move them around for best effect. A great colour for mixing with deep purples or plum shades to create a 'bruised' border.
