Pika (the Hiyacinth), Now and Then


Do you remember my recently petted plant, Pika, which I though was an onion?

Now it has blossomed into a beautiful lady of Hiyancinth (yes, finally I figured out the name of this plant). Not only beautiful, Pika also smells nice, especially in the night.

According to wikipedia, The Dutch, or Common Hyacinth of house and garden culture (H. orientalis, native to southwest Asia) was so popular in the 18th century that over 2,000 cultivars were cultivated in the Netherlands, its chief commercial producer. This hyacinth has a single dense spike of fragrant flowers in shades of red, blue, white, orange, pink, violet, or yellow. A form of the common hyacinth is the less hardy and smaller blue- or white-petalled Roman hyacinth of florists. These flowers should have indirect sunlight and are to be moderately watered.
