Hyacinthus Orientalis 'White Pearl' ('Prepared' Hyacinth Bulbs)

Hyacinthus Orientalis 'White Pearl' ('Prepared' Hyacinth Bulbs)

Fill your home with sweet perfume

Bulb size: 16/17 Tightly-packed columns of white, bell-shaped flowers look magnificent in winter or early spring and will fill your home with their delicious scent. They make an elegant table centre for special occasions, and can be used as a longer-lived alternative to a traditional cut bouquet. 'Prepared' hyacinths have been through a sequence of cold treatments, which triggers the growing process. This means they tend to flower much earlier than 'unprepared' hyacinths, and they are mainly grown as indoor plants, where their strongly scented flowers will fill your room with their sweet perfume. 'Aiolos' produces densely packed, cylindrical clusters of highly scented, ivory white flowers, which may be in flower as early as Christmas.
