    Loved your picture, enjoy your water hyacinth, but please don't let them get into a creek, natural pond or lake. They are invasive and hard to control.

    I can remember as a child walking home from elementary school seeing a pond full of hyacinths and have always thought they were beautiful. Love this one's color.Maybe you should create an applique pattern of one.Would love to see it.

    Are these as fragrant as regular hyacinths?

    My opinion also, these are lovely but VERY invasive. Even watch them in ponds, birds can and have taken a cutting or seeds on their feet and washed them off in lakes and streams.
