May we see a photo please?

Yes please, show us a photo!

Very unlikely to be a new species Doozhal... Did you plant forced hyacinths in your garden? Over the years they produce smaller and smaller flower heads and can be confused with a bluebell... Definitely need a photo!

If its the same photo thats on your avatar, it does look like a hyacinth.

Forgot to say - welcome to GoY!!!

I was just having a closer look at your avatar, and I thought it was an elderly hyacinth, too. Welcome from me, too!

Agree with elderly hyacinth, a deep reddish pink one, which look more and more like bluebells and not hyacinths as they get old.

What is it about our garden then? Some of our hyacinths, ex forced ones, have been in for 16 years and they are as good now as they were when they flowered in the house.
Agree the one in the picture does look like a Hyacinth which has been starved.

Yes it is the picture you see, its among bluebells and I only noticed it when it was nearly over so don't have a good pic of it. Thank you all for your comments

Perhaps you actually feed your hyacinths every year Owdb?
