Introducing Lowla, my vertically challenged hyacinth. It flowered right from its bulb tip, without bothering to grow a stem. Either this plant is highly efficient or I did something wrong.

How can you plant a bulb incorrectly, besides confusing top and bottom? Leave it to me....

This bulb kit was 75% off during the big Harry & David sale on Newbury Street. Perhaps that's why we only got 75% of the hyacinth. It makes the apartment smell like Easter, nevertheless.

  1. I love the name Lowla for this particular hyacinth. Easter is just around the corner when hyacinths bloom.
