    Hyacinthus orientalis var. albulus (Roman Hyacinth, French Hyacinth) to share.

    I will need to thin this bulb from some much over grown areas. I love them but they are a bit late for naturalizing in our lawn areas. I know that Whistler considers them a weed so in some areas they do multiple from seed and bulb with abandon. I have lived on this city lot for almost 30 years and only now feel like I have enough to share.

    They are currently blooming so it will be July for shipping.

    They look suspiciously like what we call Spanish bluebells to me.

    featherphobia I believe that they need a certain amount of cold temperatures to survive and bloom. You could research it more on the web. You need to be able to grow tulips and daffodils easily.

    Palustris I am wondering if I have miss labeled this plant. You are probably right. I will be researching this one today to make sure I have the right Latin name.

    Common names can be a little helpful and a lot confusing. You should have seen me trying to search out what we had always called "snow on the moutain" last week :-? . Never did find what I wanted until I looked under another common name "candytuft". :D

    Hyacinthoides hispanica, syn. Endymion hispanicus or Scilla hispanica) if you want to look them up.
