What is Roman hyacinth

Roman hyacinth (scientific name: H. o. var. albulus) is a variety of Hyacinthus orientalis, a cold-hardy bulbous plant of the family Asparagaceae, native to Greece, Turkey and other Mediterranean countries. It produces sparse, funnel-shaped inflorescences in spring from the tip of the flower stalk that emerges from the base of the leaves. It is not as cold hardy as the Dutch type, so it is best suited to warmer climates. The only flower colors are blue and white. It has an elegant fragrance. It prefers a well-drained soil and full sun. Language of flowers: General: "love beyond sorrow", white flowers: "modest loveliness".
