Hyacinth bulbs are easy to grow and come in many different colours - even black! Grow them in borders, containers or indoors and fill your house and garden with the heavenly scent. They make lovely cut flowers too. Find out more about growing hyacinths in our 'How to plant and grow bulbs, corms and tubers' guide.
Hyacinth 'Breeder's Selection'
Hyacinthus orientalisAs 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'®
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.
