Spring is nearly here, and at Bella Flora we’re celebrating early! Our Flower of the Month for March is one of our favorite spring bulbs – Hyacinth. Read on to find out why we love it – and how you can order and enjoy some of your own today.
Cut hyacinth flowers are a favorite of our shop for so many reasons. They’re long-lasting, sweetly fragrant, and available in a variety of beautiful pastels – blue, purple, yellow, pink, white… Our favorite is the bluish purple shown here, called “Blue Delft” Hyacinth.
Hyacinth stems are generally between 10-14 inches long and will last a week or more with the right care. At home, give them a fresh cut, keep them out of direct sunlight, and change their water daily. And don’t be surprised if you find your stems a little dirty! They’re harvested low to ground and usually arrive in our shop still carrying some soil. If the dirt bothers you, just rinse the stems and/or remove the dirtiest outer leaves.
It’s especially fun to watch these flowers grow and change over time. Their stems stretch taller, their waxy buds open wide, their fragrance gets more intense… We love to use the individual star-shaped buds in corsages and boutonnieres.
Cheers to an early Spring!
