DescriptionBeautiful blooms of Wild Hyacinth (all photos on this page) by
William Freiheit LLELA
The Wild Blue Hyacinth doesn't look like any Hyacinth you've seen
in a bulb catalog! For one thing, it's much taller, and the
blossoms are more delicate in color, ranging from lavender to pale
blue. The sight of them growing on the prairie in the spring is
memorable! Their native habitat is moist but well drained sand,
loam, clay or even limestone soil. On the prairie, you see them
growing in swales and seasonal run-off areas. In Texas, their
natural range is the Edwards Plateau to the Red River and east.
However, they grow north and east all the way to Ontario, Canada.
