Not china pink

Deep blue Hyacinth
How many of us buy seeds or bulbs which are labelled as a particular variety or colour, only to find out later at flowering time they are the complete opposite. These Hyacinth were labelled as "China Pink" and are the first of the season to flower. Not that I should complain as this deep blue is quite a rich colour and there is even a bit of ultraviolet in the mix on some petals.

  1. I wouldn't be complaining either. It's gorgeous. The ultraviolet does look a bit pink though.
