   This member of the Hyacinthaceae  family was given this name by Carl Ludwig von Willdenow in 1829. It is found on the Canaries Islands (and in northern Africa, but is that natural?), growing in a well drained soil like sand or grit with some water and some to lots of sun. The bulb can grow to eight centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to 35 or even 50 centimetres in height. The flowers are pink over lilac to light blue and occurs in late autumn.
