Hyacinth 'Midnight Mystic'™

Hyacinthus orientalis

 Customer Rating

Rare and highly sought after, this is the first and original black hyacinth! Available again due to popular demand - you won't find this variety for sale anywhere else! Launched to a frenzy of interest at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2005, Hyacinth 'Midnight Mystic'™ was soon completely sold out. A real breakthrough in breeding, Thompson & Morgan spent 16 years developing just three mother bulbs and the result is this stunning, unusual hardy black hyacinth with a heavenly scent. Try it in contemporary silver patio pots, or grow it in beds and borders. Either way, make sure it's on show for all to enjoy! Height: 20cm (8”). Spread: 8cm (3”). Bulb size: 15/16.

For the darkest black blooms, Hyacinth 'Midnight Mystic'™ must be grown outdoors, as flowers will appear purple in colour when 'forced' for indoor cultivation.
