In spring appear up to 12 nodding bell-shaped blue flowers in loose racemes atop a 20 inch tall stem. Plant in full sun to light shade. Keep moderately dry during summer dormancy. It is fairly hardy, thriving to USDA Zone 5 but also performs well in our coastal California garden.We grew this plant from 2001 to 2004.  The information on this webpage is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of it as it grows in the nursery in containers, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it growing. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Hyacinthoides hispanica.
