GENERAL DESCRIPTION

“Hyacinthoides non scripta” is one of the signature wildflowers in woodlands of england and western europe. This spring-blooming perennial has long been treasured for its dainty clusters of violet-blue flowers flowering in late april or early may. A woodland floor covered with flowering bluebells is a stunning sight and often forms a popular, seasonal tourist attraction.

Small, conical, underground bulbs give rise to long, glossy, strap-shaped leaves in mid-late spring. Arching, one-sided clusters of 6-12 nodding violet-blue honey-scented blooms are borne atop slender, arching, calf-high flower stems. The tube-shaped flowers have six back-curving lobes at their tips. The leaves die back after flowering.
This hardy bulb grows best in partial sun to partial shade and moist, well-drained soil. It thrives in the filtered light of deciduous trees. In england, it carpets the floor of numerous “bluebell woods”. English bluebell self-sows readily where happy and is not grazed by hungry deer. “bluebells” grow best in undisturbed soil and need plenty of light in early spring. Their rich nectar provides food for many butterflies an other insects.

Plant the bulbs 5 cm (2”) deep and leave 5-7 cm (2-3”) between bulbs.
