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.
- Garden care: Pot up and bring indoors if you want them to flower in January, otherwise plant 15cm deep and 15cm apart in a bright spot. For safety reasons always use gloves when handling these bulbs.
