Gipsy Queen Hyacinths

I can never decide on a forever favorite.

Gipsy Queen, frequently described as Apricot, Orange or Pink.

These are less mature. Tight buds hardly hint at the beautiful color.
Only a few blues left.

Mixed Hyacinths. I like to separate them into what I believe will be pastels,
yellow and whites, and blues/purples. The bulbs may be pale, tan or dark.

The real trick is to plant early or late blooming hyacinths
together so that they bloom together.
Gipsy Queen, Top Hit and Pink Pearl in a previous year.
