Common Bluebell

Hyacinthoides non-scripta

Details:

The Common Bluebell, Hyacinthoides non-scripta, or, confusingly, 'Harebell' (now more likely the common name for Campanula rotundifolia) as the Elizabethans knew it as, is increasingly disappearing as the Spanish Bluebell cousin and its hybrids take over. Unlike them, our native bluebell has delicate, scented flowers, and is an important early nectar source for several butterflies and bumblebees. As a woodland flower, bluebells need shade from the summer sun. Our bluebell bulbs are lifted to order from August to October. They should be planted at densities of up to 20 bulbs per square metre. We also supply British bluebell seed. Flowers: April - May

Common Bluebell (Hyacinthoides non-scripta)

The Common Bluebell, Hyacinthoides non-scripta, or, confusingly, 'Harebell' (now more likely the common name for Campanula rotundifolia) as the Elizabethans knew it as, is increasingly disappearing as the Spanish Bluebell cousin and its hybrids take over. Unlike them, our native English bluebell has delicate, scented flowers, and is an important early nectar source for several butterflies and bumblebees. As a woodland flower, bluebells need shade from the summer sun. Our bluebell bulbs have UK provenance - they'er grown in Wales - and are lifted to order from August to October. They should be planted at densities of up to 20 bulbs per square metre. We also supply British bluebell seed. 

Because they are lifted from a smallholding there will be variation as to the size of bulbs.

Flowers: April - May
