Straddle by Matthew Weaver. Hyacinths are highly fragrant, bell-shaped flowers with reflexed petals. The waxy, densely-packed florets come in shades of white, peach, orange, salmon, yellow, pink, red, purple, lavender and blue. The leaves of the hyacinth are fleshy, glossy green and strap shaped.
The Hyacinth bulb is a light purple or cream in color and are covered with dry, papery, skin-like layers. Zephyr, who was the god of the west wind, was overwhelmed with jealousy and he blew the discus back. It struck Hyakinthos on the head and killed him. From his blood grew a flower, which the sun god Apollo named after him. After they bloom in spring, allow the plants to grow until the leaves die off. They need time after blooming to store energy in the bulbs for next year.
To remove the dead plant, either snip them off at the base, or twist the leaves while pulling lightly. Nominated for. Rose Carnations Lilies. What are you looking for? Roses Carnations Lilies. Flowers and Art Meanings of flowers Flowers for different occasions.
