Hyacinthus is a small genus of bulbous flowering plants in the family Asparagaceae, subfamily Scilloideae. Plants are commonly called hyacinths. Hyacinthus grows from bulbs, each producing around four to six linear leaves and one to three spikes (racemes) of flowers.

Planting and care
Hyacinth bulbs are planted in the fall and borne in spring. The Victorians revered hyacinths for their sweet, lingering fragrance, and carefully massed them in low beds, planting in rows of one color each. Plant the bulbs 4 inches deep and a minimum of 3 inches apart. At the northern limits of their hardiness, plant 6 to 8 inches deep.
Grow in any well-drained, moderately fertile soil in sun or partial shade. Loosen soil and work in compost or bonemeal for fertility. Set the bulb in the hole with the pointy end up.
After planting and covering with soil, water thoroughly. If you are transplanting, water sparingly and then do not water again until flower buds appear the following year.
