Hyacinthoides hispanica Queen of the Pinks

A good alternate for retired Dainty Maid, this 1944 heirloom is lavender-pink. Also known as the Wood Hyacinth or Spanish Bluebells, it has strappy, linear foliage and strong, 12" to 15", rigid, upright stems with 15 to 20 pendant, bell-shaped flowers. Previously classified as Scilla campanulata, Hyacinthoides hispanica thrives in most soil and sunlight conditions, although it prefers a bit of light shade or dappled sunlight. When it’s really happy where planted, it can naturalize by both bulb offsets (baby bulbs on the sides of the mother bulb you’ve planted) and self-sowing seed. Widely used in both naturalized woodland settings and display gardens, this deer- and rodent-resistant naturalizer matures over the years, becoming increasingly more substantial and prolific. They impart a special look and feel to woodlands: kind of like a magical cross between a Wizard of Oz garden and a midsummer’s night dream. You’ll need about nine bulbs per square foot. (Square footage is determined multiplying the planting site’s length times its width.) In woodland settings, you can also scatter-plant the bulbs about for a more natural look. Bulb size: 8 cm/up. Full to partial sunlight. Bloom time in horticultural zone 5: May. Plant 4" deep and 4" apart. Horticultural zones 3-8. Height: 12" to 15".

Hyacinthoides & Scilla are The Art & Soul of Spring.
