Dear all,
	Taking a closer look here, it does appear that ' Dainty Maid 
' , an "alba" and ' Excelsior ' are manifestations of H. x 
	I also have at least a typical blue H. non-scripta and one 
small clump of H hispanica, but the latter is not very hardy and does 
not bloom much.

	Of course none seed around here and are very well behaved in 
this climate. It is nice to see these bulbs blooming late after most 
of the spring bulb 'surge' (to borrow a term).

	And speaking of late bulbs, flower buds are now forming on 
the latest of al tulips T. sprengeri and I am wishing I had more.  It 
doesn't seem to seed around (either) and does not clump up. It does 
mark the final show of tulip season.
