Hyacinth foliage

I know to not cut it down until it is really yellow and dried. How long does that take for hyacinth foliage? Mine finished blooming two months ago, and the foliage is just barely turning yellow.

Well that's a good thing. Plenty of photosynthesising going on to build up the bulbs for next year's flowers! If you mix your bulbs in with perennials, shrubs and annuals the dying foliage won't be so apparent.

RE: Hyacinth foliage

That is what I was hoping, since I really want them to bloom again. My sense of smell is not good, so I love that I could smell these guys. I have them packed in a bit closely together, so not sure I can fit anything in right now. I guess I will have to try. I do have some verbena I wanted to put there. :)

Does rain speed up the yellowing? We had a decent rain last night (more expected today), and I just noticed some foilage died off. :)
