Habit: uprightblue jacket hyacinth (hyacinthus orientalis)'s care: plant bulbs 4" deep at a minimum of 3" apart in autumn. At the northern limits of their hardiness, plant 6-8" deep. Protect container grown plants from excessive winter moisture. Forcing hyacinth: bulbs may be forced into early growth for indoor display in winter. Plant them with the tips just showing, in a soil based potting mix in containers with drainage holes; use bulb fiber if planting in bowls. Keep in a dark place at a temperature above freezing but no higher then 45f, for at least 10 weeks to allow roots to develop. When the shoots are about 1" long, increase light and temperature gradually.
