Hyacinthus are a genus within the Asparagaceae family, native to the eastern Mediterranean. The genus name can be traced back to a language known as Thracopelasgian, spoken approximately 4000 years ago and which referred to the blue colour of water, indicating the shade of the very first species. Hyacinthus were first mentioned by Greek poet Homer, sometime between the 10th and 8th centuries BC. The genus was first documented in England during 1596 when English herbalist, John Gerard, recorded growing them in his garden.
Hyacinthus are bulbous perennials, native to south east France and north east Italy with textured strap-shaped leaves and intensely fragrant blue, violet or white flowers that bundle together to develop a rich and visually striking cluster of colour during the spring.
