a genus of perennial bulbous plants of the family Liliaceae. The plants range from 15 to 20 cm in height. There are two or three fluted leaves in a rosette at the base of the scape. The flowers are infundibuliform, white or blue, about 1.5-2 cm in diameter, and clustered in a raceme. The lobes of the perianth are shorter than the tube and are straight. There are more than 30 species in the genus. They grow on the steppes, foothills, and mountains of Europe, Asia Minor, and Middle Asia. There are four species in the USSR.

The genus Hyacinthella Schur is a member of the Liliaceae family and there are 17 species spread out largely Mediterranean regions (Anonymous, 2010).
However, there is no reports about callus induction and shoot or bulblet regeneration of H.micrantha or other Hyacinthella species.
Uranbey et al, (2010) similarly found that considerable increases bulblet regeneration were accomplished on Orchimax mineral salts and vitamins when compared to MS and N6 basal media for close relative Hyacinthus azureus, Hyacinthella azurea or Muscari azureum species.
