Just plain ol' garden hyacinths. Some of ours look nice every year, others dwindle to a scrawny form after a year or two. I don't remember the names of the ones we grow, most of which came as a wedding present from my Opa and Oma.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|Mehdi Kavousian||Jun 16, 2008||This flower is one of the symbols used in Haft-Sin (7 things start with "S" in Persian). Iranian family decorate their tables with Haft-Sin for Nowrouz. Nowrouz is day of beginning of new year in Iran , which concides exactly with the start of spring (March 21 or 20).
