In 1807, President Jefferson recorded planting one of the oval flower beds at Monticello with double hyacinths in four colors—pink, yellow, white, and blue. Hyacinths were very popular in the 18th century, for both their fragrance and range of colors. More than 2000 distinct varieties were being produced by Dutch growers in the mid-1700s. ‘City of Haarlem,’ named after a city in Holland, was first introduced in 1893.
