Hyacinth Fondant

There's something about hyacinths - the stems tightly packed with individual florettes, each with reflexed petals and a smooth waxy sheen, the opulent, spicy scent that carries on the slightest breeze, and the ease with which these can be "forced" indoors by letting them root for 12 weeks perched at the water line of a forcing jar kept in the refrigerator. Whatever your reason, spring and hyacinths go together like strawberries and cream. Hyacinth Fondant (yes, spelled like that wonderful culinary confection) flowers in a soft, clear shade of pink and performs well in a wide range, from cold regions into warm zones. If you're wondering about growing hyacinths in your warm area garden, test with this cultivar as it performs better than most under those conditions.
