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.
