Hyacinth 'Breeder's Selection'

Hyacinthus orientalis

As with all breeding programmes, only a handful of varieties are selected for commercial production and the bulbs that are discarded are often unique and spectacular in their own right. We're privileged to offer you a unique collection of supreme hyacinth bulbs, specially selected by the breeder. More compact than many varieties, these hyacinths have shorter stems that are densely packed with colour-rich flowers and a powerful scent. Fantastic for spring displays in borders or containers indoors. Hyacinth flowers make lovely cut flowers too. You can't buy these bulbs from anywhere else! Height: 20cm (8"). Spread: 8cm (3"). Bulb size: 16/17.

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.
