Max Withers has kindly added his picture of Hyacinthoides 
hispanica  to the wiki after I asked if anyone had one to contribute. 
In case any of you did not look at his photo on flickr.com, the 
picture of the garden shows a grouping of plants that can survive 
with no care at all in Northern California, many of which, are 
considered noxious weeds. Some of us would never plant those plants 
knowing they could take over and perhaps spread to the wild, but this 
gardener took advantage of how easy they all are to grow and at least 
in spring has a splash of color in the front yard.
