Answer: Hyacinths often come back from year to year. The blooms will last a week or two, depending on the weather. A storm can break the stems, as you saw, or a hot spell can make them fade faster. After the blooms fade, remove the flower stem and allow the foliage to grow, mature and ripen or dry out naturally before you remove it. This replenishes the bulb so it has strength to bloom again next year. Hyacinths should be grown in full sun for the sturdiest stems, and they should be planted about four to six inches deep.
