About Hyacinthoides

Hyacinthoides are bulbous perennial plants with elegant strap-shaped leaves and bell-like blooms that are perfect for groundcover purposes, creating a mass of lilac or white blooms. These perfectly sculpted flowers will great us during spring time as we welcome their abundance and colour with open arms. They are best suited to flower beds and borders within a cottage or informal garden setting. You should expect to see Hyacinthoides grow to an approximate height of 30-35cm (12-14”) and a spread of up to 1m (3.2’). Please take care when handling Hyacinthoides, as they are highly toxic if ingested into your system.

How to plant Hyacinthoides

Hyacinthoides are best planted in well-drained soil of chalk, clay, sand and loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in an area of part shade, preferably below a canopy of trees and shrubs. Amend the soil with well-rotted manure or compost and mix thoroughly to the native soil. Dig a hole that is 8cm (1.5”) deep and twice as wide as your bulb, spacing your Hyacinthoides 10cm (4”) apart. Water well after planting to settle the bulbs and soil into place.

How to care for Hyacinthoides

Water Hyacinthoides throughout active growth and during periods of sustained dry weather. Leave the foliage in place after flowering as this will gather energy for the following season, although you can remove spent flower heads.

How to propagate Hyacinthoides

It is possible to propagate Hyacinthoides by seed that can be sown in pots within a cold frame. Alternatively, you may remove the offsets during the summer.
