Dear all, This species is also known under the genus Hyacinthoides. Its bulbs not all like those of the Scillas and are very similar to Hyacinthoides hispanica. (Fleshy with hardly any outer tunic). The form Jim mentioned (with its typical neat 'rosette') is the last flowering form. Other forms are flowering from end of August onwards. A very worthwhile decoratif species but for some reason rarely demanded. Kind greetings Lauw de Jager http://www.bulbargence.com/ (South of France) -----Original Message----- From: "Jim McKenney" If I understand the name correctly, this one is well named. The neat rosette of leaves do suggest tongues, and the bristles which line the edges of the leaves account for the ciliolata part. As it grows here, this is a very neat, tidy plant.
