Hyacinth City of Haarlem (Hyacinthus orientalis City of Haarlem) is the best and most well-known oriental hyacinth in a (soft) yellow colour. The star-shaped flowers have petals that slightly curl backwards as they grow very closely to the sturdy stem. City of Haarlem has proven to be the most memorable one, even during the years when yellow flowers were, generally, less popular. Hyacinth City of Haarlem matches very well with, for example, hyacinth Woodstock. Hyacinths make your garden look very beautiful as they start blooming in month April. They can be planted in pots as well. If you plant enough of them in your garden, you can also cut them and put them in a vase with other spring flowers.

Other information

  • First loosen the soil well where the flower bulbs will be planted. Then the soil is easier to work with.
  • Dig a hole and make sure it is 2 to 3 times as deep as the height of the hyacinth bulbs.
  • For the distance between the bulbs, make sure it is 2 times the diameter of the bulbs.
  • Plant the flower bulbs in the hole with the pointed side facing up or with the root base facing down.
  • Cover the hyacinth bulbs with soil and water them well.

Pre-orders can be placed until the first week of August, which will be shipped in the first half of September and delivered in October.
