Planting Instructions for Hyacinths

I have never planted bulbs before. I am interested in planting Hyacinth bulbs. Do they need full sun, partial sun, or shade. I am new to this and have no idea. Thanks.


Hardiness Zone: 6a

My hyacinths are planted in partial shade and do very well. In early spring the buds on trees are beginning to show and there's little foliage to isolate the sun at this time. The key to planting is what blooms in the spring, plant in the fall and what blooms in the fall, plant in the spring.
