I love growing unusual and interesting things and am teaching my son to love it too. I have a tiny mostly potted garden in Newcastle NSW.

Magenta one is hyacinth Woodstock. Pink pearl is sort of shell pink or baby pink. It's very annoying when the bulbs are mislabelled. 😞

I feel your pain. I’ve got a neon pink Monarda in the midst of several red ones due to the nursery’s misplaced tag. That was definitely a surprise earlier this summer. 😳

@ublaszko The packs did say Pink Pearl but check out the pic of the packaging I put up. Sooooo not the same colour. Grrr

Yeah, the photo on the label is misleading. I find that happens quite a lot so I usually check photos on GT or Google images before buying spring bulbs. It's so annoying when you're going for a colour scheme and the labels are wrong.
