A real breakthrough in breeding, this rare and unusual Hyacinth makes a dramatic specimen plant for your spring beds, borders and containers; producing highly fragrant black-purple blooms in March and April. Plant Hyacinth 'Midnight Mystic'® in groups for a truly breathtaking display. For the darkest black blooms grow Hyacinth 'Midnight Mystic'® outdoors, as flowers will have more purple tones when grown indoors. Height: 25cm (10"). Spread: 8cm (3"). Supplied as bulbs.
Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten. For outdoor displays, plant hyacinth bulbs in October and November, with the pointed end facing upwards, at a depth of approximately 10cm (4"). Choose a sunny or semi shaded position in moist, free draining soil.
For an attractive indoor display, plant Hyacinths in containers of bulb fibre or potting compost with the tip of the bulb just visible above the soil surface. Position them in a cool garage or other well ventilated, dark position at a maximum temperature of 7°C for around 6 weeks. Only water bulbs when necessary to keep the compost moist. When the growing shoots reach a height of 3cm (1") move the containers to a cool bright position indoors.
