Hyacinthus orientalis in bloom

[Photo: pink hyacinth in bloom.]Hyacinthus orientalis, known in Englisha as common hyacinth, Dutch hyacinth, or garden hyacinth, and in French as jacinthe d'Orient is a flowering bulbous perennial native to southwest Asia. Its spikes of mauve, pink, white, purple, light blue, or light yellow flowers are extremely fragrant.

Well, most of the budding hyacinths I posted a few weeks ago were trampled, alas. This is the least mangled of the plants.
