*GipP, *HSF, *Strz, *Wim. Native to Spain, commonly cultivated, plants occasionally escaping gardens in Victoria.
Hyacinthoides hispanica and H. non-scripta are commonly hybridised in cultivation, and many naturalised populations are likely to include or only consist of hybridised plants. As such, many plants encountered are likely to be somewhat intermediate between these two species.
