  • Lisianthus 'Cinderella Pink'

    Posted by Patti Tucker

A lovely, seldom-seen shade of azure blue, as clean and clear as the summer sky, distinguishes these beautiful blooms. Each petal is striped with darker blue, accentuating just how many flowers are crowded onto each of these 6-inch wands! An easy spring-blooming bulb that also can be forced for winter flowering indoors, 'Sky Jacket' is just what the garden needs to begin another season of glory.'Sky Jacket' is an Oriental Hyacinth, the most popular type for American gardens, thanks to their flower-packed stems, easy culture, and lovely bloom colors. Try 'Sky Jacket' among white 'Carnegie' and 'Pink Pearl' for a lovely trio, or set it among the late-blooming Tulips for a nice contrast in color and form. It blooms in late spring in most climates, its fragrant flowers lasting more than a week in the vase.An award-winner that deer leave alone but early butterflies visit frequently, this sweet-scented treasure is ideal for containers as well as the sunny garden, and may be forced indoors using a hyacinth glass or similar-shaped vase that allows the base of the bulb to barely touch the water, encouraging the roots to grow down into the water as the flowering stem bursts into bud and then bloom. This makes a nice swathe of indoor color and fragrance for those gray February days, and begins spring a little earlier for the gardener!'Sky Jacket' reaches about 8 to 12 inches high (in flower) and 4 to 6 inches wide. Let its foliage die back completely in the garden, and it will be ready for another glorious season of bloom next year! Easy and foolproof. Zones 4-8.
