Wild true hyacinths

Dear all;
	As the hyacinths are looking past their peak, I got to 
wondering- dangerous, I know.
	Does anyone grow the species instead of these gaudy cultivars?

	I have a few brightly colored cvs and the 'multi-scaped' 
forms, but their colors really are pretty shocking compared to the 
pastels of spring. I assume the few wild species are more subdued, 
possibly more difficult to grow(?) and less available.

	Appreciate comments, suggests and sources.

	Thanks	Jim W.
