The original Hyacinth originated in Anatolia; the westernmost part of Asia known today as modern-day Turkey. Over time, they were brought to Europe. The word Hyacinth origins extend back to Greek mythology.
Ensure you water your Hyacinth during dry spells and place it in full sun to light shade. The pot should be well-drained, to ensure that the bulb does not rot. After 8 – 12 weeks, your Hyacinth will begin to go dormant. At this time your flower will die and the leaves will wither. Cut the flower stock off at this point. After flowers on spring-flowering bulbs fade, remove them so the plants don’t invest energy in developing seeds. You want them putting their energy back into the bulb. Do not remove foliage until it turns yellow and dies back naturally. After the leaves have died, store your pot in a cold dark space and do not touch them until spring.
Each year when the hyacinth rebloom, it will take up more and more space. While it is still dormant, you can repot it into a large pot, or plant it outside in your garden to give it more room to grow.
