Hyacinth, 'Carnegie'

Hyacinth 'Carnegie' has a beautiful pure-white flower with a lovely spicy scent! This is one of the few all-white Dutch hyacinths. White is always a great color to contrast with the many brightly colored spring bulbs. A dense spike of fragrant florets are surrounded by green sword-like foliage. It is a fully hardy, perennial. Thrives in sun or light shade and requires well-drained soil.

Hyacinths are extremely highly scented and very colorful, due to their neatness they are an ideal plant for bedding schemes, they also look fantastic in large pots and containers. The flowers of the Hyacinths have spikes of star-shaped flowers, commonly one spike per bulb, accompanied by sword-like green leaves. Hyacinths have uniformly shaped flowers and distinguished colors. They may be planted anywhere in your landscape, in sun or shade, along borders, in groups along a fence or around a tree or mailbox. Hyacinths look best in mass plantings. All hyacinths are excellent for forcing in pots for early color and fragrance indoors but are equally valuable as outdoor plants for flowering in late spring.
