English Bluebells

Hyacinthoides non-scripta, Endymion non-scriptus, Scilla non-scripta, Scilla nutans

A sea of English bluebells rekindles memories of springtime woodland walks, when the days start to lengthen and the weather warms up. The nodding, violet-blue flowers of these hardy, native bulbs attract insects to their delicately scented flowers. At their happiest when growing in the dappled shade of deciduous trees, English bluebells are ideal for a woodland garden or naturalising in informal areas of grass. These vigorous beauties will multiply each year to form a dense carpet of spring colour. Height: 25cm (10"). Spread: 8cm (3"). Bulb size: 5/6.
Bluebell bulbs are ideal for autumn planting. For spring planting choose bluebells in the green. Only cultivated stock used.
