Dark Dimension Hyacinth Bulb Fragrant Hardy Garden Perennial Very Rare

DARK ALMOST BLACK EDGES VIOLET. MAIN PHOTO STOCK PHOTO ONLY (ONE BULB SENT). PLEASE BE AWARE THESE BULBS ARE VERY RARE AND EXPENSIVE SO ONLY 1 BULB PER SALE. CHEAP DARK DIMENSION WILL NOT BE GENUINE BUT AN ORDINARY PURPLE HYACINTH.

HYACINTH IS THE FAMILIAR PERENNIAL BULB GROWN FOR ITS UPRIGHT CLUSTERS OF HIGHLY FRAGRANT TIGHTLY-PACKED WAXY FLOWERS IMPORTED LONG AGO FROM ITS HOME IN WESTERN ASIA. IT HAS BEEN BRED EXTENSIVELY, MAINLY BY DUTCH GROWERS, TO PRODUCE A RANGE OF COLOURS FROM WHITE THROUGH YELLOW AND PINK TO RED, BLUE AND PURPLE, AS MANY AS 40 FLOWERS IN EACH CLUSTER.

"DARK DIMENSION" HAS CYLINDRICAL CLUSTERS OF VERY FRAGRANT, BELL-SHAPED FLOWERS WHICH BLOOM ALONG FLESHY STEMS IN EARLY TO MID-SPRING, ABOVE SYMMETRICAL ROSETTES OF NARROW LEAVES. DARK DIMESNSION IS A NEW VARIETY AND VERY RARE. THE PLANT BREEDER SPENT MANY YEARS DEVELOPING A TRULY REMARKABLE HYACINTH. IT IS THE NEAREST THING TO A BLACK HYACINTH EVER GROWN. AS THE FLORETS OF THE HYACINTH BEGIN TO OPEN IT WILL BE MORE LIKE A DARK PURPLE THAN BEING BLACK, BUT AS THE FLOWER MATURES DURING THE SEASON HYACINT DARK DIMENSION WILL TURN OUT BLACK.

FOR INDOOR FORCING PLANT THEM IN A SUITABLE POT WITH BULB FIBRE, LEAVE THE TOP OF THE BULB ABOVE THE SURFACE AND THEN WEIGH DOWN WITH SOME SAND TO STOP THE ROOTS PUSHING THE BULB UPWARDS. STORE IN A COOL DARK PLACE AND ENSURE TO KEEP MOIST NOT WET THROUGH.

ONCE THE SHOOTS APPEAR BRING INTO A WARM, LIGHT ROOM IN THE HOUSE AND THE BUDS WILL BEGIN TO BLOOM. "HYACINTHS" PREFER SUN OR LIGHT SHADE AND WELL-DRAINED BUT FERTILE SOIL. THEY LOOK BEST PLANTED IN MASSES AMONG OTHER SPRING BULBS.

THEY MAKE A SHOWY BEDDING PLANT OR A SPRING HERALD IN MIXED BORDERS. IN THE GARDEN THEIR FRAGRANCE CAN BE DETECTED FROM A CONSIDERABLE DISTANCE. THEY ARE ALSO IDEAL FOR WINTER FORCING. THEY CAN ALSO BE PLANTED IN POTS, TRY PLANTING THEM IN A POT WITH TÊTE Á TÊTE FOR A GEORGEOUS COMBINATION.

IT CAN BE GROWN IN CONTAINERS USING PRE-CHILLED BULBS. IT WILL ALSO FLOWER IN A HYACINTH GLASS, A VESSEL THAT HOLDS THE BULB, JUST TOUCHING THE SURFACE OF A RESERVOIR OF WATER IN WHICH THE ROOTS GROW. THE HEAVENLY FRAGRANCE WILL CHASE THE WINTER BLUES FROM ANY ROOM IN THE HOUSE. HYACINTHS AREN'T LIKED BY DEER OR RODENTS.

THESE PRODUCE ENORMOUS FLOWER HEADS WITH 60-70 FLORETS ON EACH BULB'S SINGLE STEM. FOR INDOOR FORCING THIS IS FINE, BUT IN THE OPEN GARDEN THIS ENORMOUS BLOOM WILL BE WAY TOO TOP-HEAVY AND MAY BE A DISSAPOINTMENT.

MID-SIZED HYACINTH BULBS PRODUCE SMALLER BLOOMS BUT STILL PRETTY DARNED BIG, WITH FAR FEWER TIP-OVERS. BULB SIZE 14/15 &15/16 ARE BEST FOR OUTDOORS. ANYTHING LARGER SHOULD BE RESERVED FOR INDOOR FORCING. PLANT BULBS 7-10 CM (3"-4") DEEP IN CLUSTERS. ENQUIRIES FOR LARGER QUANTITIES & ORDERS WELCOME.
