  • Description

City of Haarlem forms a flower spike of great substance with closely placed bells of a lovely shade of creamy primrose yellow. 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. The best time for City of Haarlem to be removed from the plunge or cellar is in February. Our Top Size City of Haarlem has also been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
