Well known all over the world as an icon of spring.
Common hyacinth is native to Turkey, Lebanon, Israel and the now of war suffering Syria.
It’s the birth cradle of more then 2000 hybrids after being introduced to European gardens in the 16th century.
Nowadays it is widely cultivated everywhere in the temperate world for its strongly fragrant flowers that bloom in brightly coloured clusters.
