What Makes Flowers Fragrant?
Every type of flower – even different cultivars of the same species – has a completely unique fragrance. The scent of flowers comes from thousands of various chemical compounds contained in a flower’s essential oils.
Hyacinths grow natively from Northern Bulgaria to Northern Israel, making them winter hardy in zones 4 through 8. Early spring bloomers, the first wafts of their sweet fragrance mark the beginning of spring for many.
