Not really belongs to this thread, Hyacinthus orientalis.
These plants are grown from seeds collected at  low elevation above the Lake of Galilee,
It as an early bloomer, starting mid December.
Tivon, in the lower Galilee, north Israel.

I'm rather taken by Hyacinthellas and am building a little collection and so far have glabrescens, lineata and millengrenii. Pretty but unassuming little things but I think they look their best in close-up.

Hyacinthella lineata-a buy from Bob and Rannveig Wallis
H. glabrescens-a pot of seedlings sown August 2008 (AGS Seed Ex. 08/09-3285) and flowering for the first time. I have a larger glabrescens, again from Bob and Rannveig yet to flower.

Very pretty, David.  A few days ago I had a pot full of Hyacinthella lineata (seeds from AGS) ready to flower for the first time.  Only the pot and the bulbs (I hope) left now and somewhere a mouse with a full stomach  >:(.

They are really nice David.

I just came back from Cyprus where hundreds of thousands of Hyacinthella millingenii are blooming now.
They are growing in low elevations 50 - 300m[mostly] but seen also up to 500m.
It is a tiny species, usually 3-5cm and when protected from the winds it can reach even 12cm as the one in the photo, but this is not very common.

I really like David's little hyacinthellas - I've only tried these outside on a raised bed but have not managed to establish them. They are so small that they are probably better in pots. We do grow a lot of muscari in the garden and they associate very well with other bulbs. They are always so early in leaf which is a bit disconcerting. In the garden some do show yellowing of the leaf tips, though it doesn't seem to set them back. One of the most exquisite, a delicate little gem, is M. mcbeathianum. I hope I get a few flowers to post of this later on.
