Botanical name: Hyacinthus
Plant family: Asparagaceae (bot. Asparagaceae)
Occurrence: Middle East to South Turkmenistan and Northeast Iran
Hyacinths belong to the asparagus family and originally come from the Mediterranean countries. The hyacinth forms a flower cluster on the upright stems, which is occupied by hundreds of small, chalice-like flowers, which spread the characteristic, intense sweet scent.
The hyacinth is incredibly long-lived, robust and blooming. It was already very popular in the 18th century and fascinated people. It came to us in Europe from the Middle East via Constantinople as early as the 16th century. In addition, they attract everyone’s attention, because the flowers of the hyacinth shine in the most magnificent colors. In all shades of color, they are considered flowers of romance and are therefore the right choice in all bouquets that lovers want to give each other. Red hyacinths express the depth of love, while white hyacinths represent the joy of life. The blue and purple hyacinth represents hope and patient waiting.
With its intense scent, the hyacinth demands attention. If the scent is too intense for you, spread the flowers over several vases and simply place them separately.
Care tips for hyacinths
Cut a thin slice from the root of the hyacinth and place the hyacinth alone in a vase with cold water. Since they secrete light mucus after cutting, you should change the water after 10 minutes. The water in the vase should ideally be changed every two to three days, otherwise it contains too few nutrients and too many harmful microorganisms. It is also advisable to wash the vase briefly at the same time.
