Hyacinth?

Well if it's that tricky telling the difference maybe I should start charging people to come and see them...

Thanks all. Judging by what it says here about Spanish ones having upright stems, and here about having non-white pollen, it seems they are Spanish. And that would tally with them having taken over the garden.

Wondering if anyone knows what the plant in the foreground is? It looks like some kind of hyacinth to me but I can't find one similar. thanks

I see we now have golden root mealybug that can survive winter outdoors. Oh dear.

Here's another view of the second one, if it helps pin it down at all.

I have what I thought was a camellia in my new garden but the flowers buds certainly don't look camellia-like (see photo). Wondering if anyone knows what it is?

thanks

Guess I should be more patient and wait until the plants flower next year.

Well spotted. But is it a camelia? (the plot thickens) I thought they had large rose-like flowers, but I see it has some rosettes of what look like tiny flower buds coming at the top.
