Hyacinth (scientific name: Hyacinthus orientalis) is native to the Mediterranean coast and is a cold-resistant bulb plant of the Asparagaceae. It is a plant that is relatively easy to cultivate. Like morning glory, elementary school is used to hydroponically cultivate hyacinth in a science class and to learn the growth of plants in Japan. The leaves are thick and slender, and the tip is sharp. From winter to the next spring, the race flower stretches out from the tip of a thick flower stem which originated from the root of the leaves, and a large number of funnel-shaped florets are gathered and made to bloom. Flower color is rich, blue purple, white, pink, red and yellow. It likes sunlight and well-drained soil. It is used for planting flowers, potted plants and cut flowers.
