Hyacinthoides non-scripta (English Bluebell) is easily recognisable with its nodding cascade of between five and twelve elongated, shaded violet-blue, bell-shaped flowers, with recurved tips and a delightful heady fragrance. These are English-grown cultivated stocks, allowing you to create your own carpet of blue, but they can also be used in borders, beds or under shrubs and will attract pollinators to your garden. These beautiful plants are perfect for naturalising, and will thrive without much encouragement.
Ideal for garden fragrance.

Hyacinthoides (bluebells) like full sun or partial shade and a well-drained soil with a good supply of humus such as leaf mould or compost. Ideal for naturalising (leaving in for flowers year after year) in borders, wild gardens, woodlands and between shrubs and trees. These bulbs are hardy and require no special attention. Should they become overcrowded, lift, divide and replant after flowering. Once established, hyacinthoides will spread rapidly.
