Meet Hyacinth ‘Dark Dimension’ snuggled up against this double-early yellow tulip. A nice addition to the Black Plant List.
Spring is a little late this year, but it’s finally beginning to show up around here in Georgia, Zone 7B. The bulbs from last fall are making an appearance.

Hyacinths: what’s not to love? These bulbs lay hidden all winter long, emerging late February and into March as beautiful pillars of vibrant color…while we are still under the chill of the season. Hyacinths are deer-proof and wonderfully fragrant, so use them near an entryway where they will be enjoyed most.
In my next life I want to be The Graveyard Gardener.
