Our Pastel Shades Hand Tied Bouquet includes all the flowers associated with Spring time.  The delicately fragranced Hyacinths, finest Dutch Tulips and Gerberas are the complete epitome of this time of year.  The vibrant colours will brighten up any setting and would look perfect on a coffee table! Hyacinthus is a small genus of bulbous flowering plants in the family Asparagaceae, subfamily Scilloideae, that are commonly called hyacinths . The genus is native to the eastern Mediterranean (from south Turkey through Lebanon and Syria to northern Israel), Iraq, north-east Iran, and Turkmenistan.Several species of Brodiea, Scilla, and other plants that were formerly classified in the lily family and have flower clusters borne along the stalk also have common names with the word “hyacinth” in them. Hyacinths should also not be confused with the genus Muscari, which are commonly known as grape hyacinthsThe genus name Hyacinthus was attributed to Joseph Pitton de Tournefort when used by Carl Linnaeus in 1753. It is derived from a Greek name used for a plant by Homer, ὑάκινθος (hyakinthos), the flowers supposedly having grown up from the blood of a youth of this name accidentally killed by the god Apollo. (The original wild plant known as hyakinthos to Homer has been identified with Scilla bifolia, among other possibilities.) Linnaeus defined the genus Hyacinthus widely to include species now placed in other genera of the subfamily Scilloideae, such as Muscari (e.g. his Hyacinthus botryoides) and Hyacinthoides (e.g. his Hyacinthus non-scriptus).Hyacinthus was formerly the type genus of the separate family Hyacinthaceae; prior to that the genus was placed in the lily familyThe Dutch, or common hyacinth of house and garden culture (H. orientalis, native to southwest Asia) was so popular in the 18th century that over 2,000 cultivars were grown in the Netherlands, its chief commercial producer. This hyacinth has a single dense spike of fragrant flowers in shades of red, blue, white, orange, pink, violet or yellow. A form of the common hyacinth is the less hardy and smaller blue- or white-petalled Roman hyacinth of florists. These flowers need indirect sunlight and should be watered moderately
