I am no bluebell expert, but I do have a habitat picture I took a few years
ago of a Hyacinthoides I suspect is hispanica -- because the "habitat" is a
yard overgrown with Allium triquetrum and Centranthus ruber, with some
Oxalis pes-caprae for good measure. More to the morphological point, it has
nodding scapes, which I vaguely remember differentiating the English from
the Spanish. I'm happy to upload it to the wiki if someone would confirm the
(Lest the comments there are confusing, I thought the plant was
H.non-scripta at the time).

Where Crocus cartwrightianus and sativa are blooming simultaneously this
week. In past years sativus has been a week or so earlier.
