All but one of the five Hyacinth bulbs I potted earlier this month is in bloom. The fifth is just shy and coming along slowly. As promised I'm posting a few shots of what they look like.They've already been filling the house with their sweet aroma. The little guy planted three in single cups, and they're just now starting to emerge.
Each plant is sending up a second stalk, although I don't believe you can see that in these photos. A quick Internet search shows these are likely Multiflora Hyacinths, which produce a number of stalks with a loose, less formal arrangement of flowers. These flowers normally bloom between March and April, but forcing is a way of bringing a little spring inside early. Another tidbit: March 7th is the World Hyacinth Day.
