These 'prepared' hyacinths have been through a sequence of cold treatments, which triggers the growing process. This means they tend to flower much earlier than 'unprepared' hyacinths, and they are mainly grown as indoor plants, where their strongly scented flowers will fill your room with their sweet perfume. Fondant has a flowerspike which is crowded with flaring, bell-shaped flowers that have a deliciously sweet scent. The petals are a soft shade of apple blossom pink, becoming paler towards the outer edge.
