Hyacinthoides non-scrypta

In forum: Hyacinthoides non-scripta

When buying bluebells, ensure that the bulbs are from a legitimate supplier, as vast numbers of bluebell bulbs are stripped illegally from the wild every year. Moreover, some plants sold as bluebells are hybrid varieties, crossed with the Spanish bluebell, which have a far less rich colour and are less graceful in habit. Hybrid bluebells are apt to escape into the wild, and, being partly fertile, may interbreed with native bluebells.
