Hello TN members .

Hyacinthus orientalis is a perennial flowering plant of the genus Hyacinthus, native to southwestern Asia, in southern and central Turkey, northwestern Syria, Lebanon and northern Israel. It was introduced to Europe in the 16th century.

It is a bulb plant, with a 37 cm diameter bulb. The leaves are strap-shaped, 1535 cm long and 13 cm broad, with a soft, succulent texture, and produced in a basal whorl. The flowering stem grows to 2035 cm (rarely to 45 cm) tall, bearing a spike of 2-50 fragrant purple flowers 2-3.5 cm long with a tubular, six-lobed perianth.

In Greek mythology, Hyakinthos was a young man admired by Apollo and Zephyr, but killed by a discus in a jealous fight between the two gods. The flower was allegedly named after him when it sprang from his blood.
I hope you like it !
