  • Description

RHS Award of Garden Merit holder Blue Jacket has a solid spike of bluebell blue flowers with a slight silver edge to its bells. Our hyacinths are classified as Dutch (or florist) hyacinths which are famed for being a large flowering strain. This strain originates from the Hyacinthus orientalis, a native of countries such as Turkey and was introduced in England in 1560 by Anthony Jenkinson, within a century breeders in Holland had raised over 2,000 varieties. If you are interested in forcing your hyacinths the minimum suitable size is 18cm so we would recommend that you focus on our Top Size Hyacinths. Our Garden Hyacinths are excellent in small beds and if planted in window boxes their wonderful fragrance will gently waft into your house when they catch the sun. For those interested in planting a combination of hyacinths Blue Jacket will flower late in the season.
