Hyacinths are known for their sweet fragrance—and they're a favorite flower bulb for forcing for indoor enjoyment, growing in containers and planting in the garden. Available in many flower colors, including white, pink, lavender, blue and yellow, hyacinths bloom in the spring at about the same time as daffodils. Hyacinth bulbs are planted in the fall. They grow best in full sun and in well-drained soils. Because they only grow 8-12 inches tall, they're often planted in beds and borders or as informal accents. These deer-resistant plants look best when planted in groups. Suitable for growing in zones 4-9, hyacinths can be grown in many areas in the United States.
