?? My rummaging through old gardens in the Puget Sound area, especially Tacoma and Seattle,Washington, has produced only one?finding?of what appears to be pure Hyacinthoides hispanica and one of H. non-scripta.? All the other plants appear to be various forms of the hybrid H x massartiana ( H. x variabilis? ).? There must be millions of them here locally.
???? Some of the trade material of H non-scripta that I've seen or grown seems to be hybridized as well.?
???? Hycinthoides?? ' Rose Queen ' , ' Dainty Maid ' and ' Excelsior ' all appear to be manifestations of H. x massartiana.
