Hyacinthus orientalis 'Miss Saigon'

Overall Description

Miss Saigon Dutch Hyacinth is an amazing bloomer of slender purple colored florets ( nails ) that have delicate pale edges. Truly remarkable color - with a lilac / blue underside to each petal. The backs of these petals almost have a slivery lilac sheen to them. Hard to describe...…..except to say that this Dutch Hyacinth variety is hands down one of the most breathtaking we've ever seen! Outstanding for use in container gardening, along walkways, and as a mass planting in the foreground of any garden setting - especially considering the very unique color of these hyacinths. Gives great contrast when mixed with other flower species of more "usual' colors ( i.e. yellows, whites, pinks, etc ).

Best planted at a depth of 5" - 6" anytime in mid fall thru winter. Suggested planting is 4 - 5 bulbs per sq ft for good density once sprouted & blooming. Miss Saigon is an early to mid bloomer in spring, and is a great early forcing variety if desired for use indoors or getting a jumpstart on spring in greenhouses.

We offer our Miss Saigon Dutch Hyacinth bulbs at a per bulb price - be sure to check out the quantity discounts offered if you need several bulbs. Guaranteed to be of excellent size & quality.

--Fertilization / Feeding :
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend a good grade granular ( preferably organic ) fertilizer / plant food for use with all of our plant species. We personally use, and recommend the Espoma line of organic plant foods, as they are super effective yet gentle enough to use on even the most delicate of evergreen species where fertilizer burn would normally be a major concern. However, a water soluble type plant food (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ) are also acceptable options. Other granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio can also be used - but we suggest using them at 1/2 - 3/4 strength to avoid any chemical burn issues to the root system of the plants. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. The Espoma Organic Plant Foods may be used at anytime.
