Subject: [pbs] Hyacinthella

I added photos to the wiki of a bulb I got from Jane McGary when she 
was still selling them of Hyacinthella lazulina. I've added some 
photos to the wiki, but I am hoping someone can confirm that this is 
really what it is. It doesn't look quite like some of the other 
photos I found on the Internet that show a much darker color and 
flowers closer together. But then as my photos show, it looks 
different at different stages. I am assuming that Jane grew it from 
seed from a reliable source.

I purchased it in 2005 and the same one bulb is still alive and 
blooms most years in March or April. With our dryer than usual winter 
this year it started blooming late February. It has not increased.
