Hyacinths are a boldly colored spring bloom that are native to Israel, Turkey, and other areas of the Mediterranean. The name originated in Greek mythology. Hyacinth blooms are said to have sprung up from the blood of a man named Hyacinth who was killed by Zephyr, the Grecian god of the west wind. The sun god Apollo was throwing a discus, and Zephyr, in a jealous rage, used the power of the west wind to throw it off course.
