Description from White Flower Farm

Deep violet-blue, darker and larger than most varieties of Hyacinthoides hispanica. Heirloom, 1906.
This small genus of spring-blooming bulbs from Europe and Asia is one of the most versatile and valuable because of its extraordinary willingness to prosper and bloom in sun to deep shade (some shade is required for satisfactory performances in the South). They thrive in a wide range of climates and well-drained soils, although a site with ample moisture early in the growing season is the key to abundant flowers. They will spread discreetly but steadily, making a cheerful community, then disappear by midsummer. Because Hyacinthoides are later bloomers, they are useful in the transition from early-spring bulbs to the first June perennials.
