Festival Hyacinths or Hyacinthus Orientalis
I love Hyacinths and have been thinking about buying some Festival Hyacinth bulbs this fall, but they seem to be pretty expensive. Are the Festival Hyacinths worth twice the price of the Hyacinth Orientalis? I was looking at Blue Festival or Hyacinth Orientalis Sky Jacket, but with the other bulbs (alliums, erenurus, tulips and narcissus) that I am ordering, I really can't afford both types of hyacinths. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
