The color white is often associated with innocence, but don't let that fool you when it comes to L'Innocence hyacinth (Hyacinthus orientalis 'L'Innocence'). This perky spring bulb is far from bashful in the garden. For nearly 150 years, L'Innocence has been reliably hardy and universally pleasing. Warm white blooms nestle above green strap-shaped leaves and tease the air with an intense fragrance. Not one to be a wallflower among your other spring bulbs, L'Innocence can reach a height of 12 inches.
