Music festival vs musical

My 'Miss Saigon' hyacinths look gorgeous now. They are a stunning, sexy purple and the scent is wonderful - it's not as sickly-sweet as some hyacinths. They are short and fat though, which means they are not much use for floristry (although maybe if I grew them differently they would be?), but they look beautiful grouped together in a pot.

I compared them to another purple I grew a few years ago. This is 'Woodstock', which grew long and lanky, and didn't last very long. I think I need my hyacinths to be somewhere in the middle!
