Spanish Bluebells ( Hyacinthoides hispanica ) are a very popular choice for a spring-flowering bulb. The main reason is that they are easy to grow, even for time challenged or lazy gardeners... they are rarely affected by pests and diseases, and also deer and rodents don't enjoy their taste. Their pendulous flowers appear in Spring , rising above deep green clumps of shiny foliage, so they add charm to many garden spots. They are also happy in pots, and can be brought indoors for short periods. They are available in different shades of blue, and also in pink and white colours. There are other species of Bluebells with similar characteristics as these.

Bluebells are frost-tolerant to -20 degrees centigrade, and will be happiest in a temperate to cooler climate. Keep the soil moist where they are planted, and give them a position with semi-shade , or dappled sunlight under trees. I took these photos in a Sydney suburban garden. Some of these are growing in a lawn, so care has to be taken not to cut them off with the mower !new8 008.jpgnew7 067.jpgnew7 177.jpgnew7 178.jpg

Also known as Wood Hyacinths, Spanish Bluebellls (Hyacinthoides hispanica) are charming additions to the spring garden. The pale blue, dangling bells complement yellow daffodils, red tulips, white lily-of-the-valley, and many other spring flowers.

Spanish bluebells are bulbous perennials native to Spain, Portugal and northwest Africa. Each bulb produces a clump of 2-6 strap-shaped leaves and a flower stem with 12-15 hanging, bell-shaped flowers. The plants are 12-18" tall. The bulbs are inexpensive, readily available, and easy to grow, so if you are new to bulb gardening, they are great plants to try.

Hardy in zones 3-8, Spanish bluebells will grow in full sun to part shade, and are not fussy about their soil requirements. They are good naturalizes, spreading both through bulb offsets and seeds. Here in New England, they will spread discreetly but steadily, making a cheerful community. Like other spring bulbs, they should be planted in the fall, and will bloom in early April to early May. The leaves will disappear as the plants go dormant for the summer.

Fav. comment Award ! Thanks for the great Pics.

Spanish bluebells are an easy-care spring-blooming bulb that does best in full sun (at least six hours of direct sun per day) or part shade. While they tolerate all-day shade, they don't tend to bloom as well. As the plants go dormant in early summer after they've leafed out, they're ideal for growing beneath deciduous trees like oaks and maples.

The best time to plant Spanish bluebells, like most other spring-blooming bulbs, is in early fall as soil temperatures begin to cool. These plants are not fussy about soil type, but they bloom best and spread fastest in a soil that's moist, well-drained, and rich in organic matter. Avoid soil that has a high clay content; in soggy soil they have a tendency to rot out and die over the summer.

Fav. comment Award !! Well done on your choice of Pics.

Spanish Bluebells (properly, Hyacinthoides hispanica) are best known for their pendent clusters of blue flowers, but there are also charming pink and white varieties available. Massed in a woodland or sprinkled through the perennial border, they mount a colorful and long-lasting display that will be repeated for many years to come. Not labeled. 25 bulbs cover 3 sq ft.

This small genus of spring-blooming bulbs from Europe and Asia is one of the most versatile and valuable because of its extraordinary willingness to prosper and bloom in sun to deep shade (some shade is required for satisfactory performances in the South). They thrive in a wide range of climates and well-drained soils, although a site with ample moisture early in the growing season is the key to abundant flowers. They will spread discreetly but steadily, making a cheerful community, then disappear by midsummer. Because Hyacinthoides are later bloomers, they are useful in the transition from early-spring bulbs to the first June perennials.

Excellent Pics, thanks !

Botanists now want us to call Spanish bluebells Hyacinthoides hispanica. But older names persist, including Scilla hispanica; they were also formerly placed in the Endymion genus. The package that you buy at the store may well be labeled Scilla campanulata -- yet another botanical name for the plant.

The scientific names of plants are supposed to make our lives easier as gardeners, giving precision where there would otherwise be chaos. Usually, they live up to their mission statement. Sadly, sometimes botanists have trouble figuring out what botanical name they wish to give a plant. The result is that older literature is littered with the rejected names, as the new name struggles to gain preeminence.

Plant height (and the number of flowers per stalk) will vary according to factors such as the size of the bulb. During the first year that you grow these plants in your yard, the tallest plant may reach 16 inches, while the shortest may stand around 7 inches high (these heights include the floral stalk). Size may diminish in subsequent years. The foliage is basal and sword-shaped, forming a clump.

Lovely Pics, thanks.

Hyacinthoides hispanica
Also known as the Wood Hyacinth or Spanish Bluebells, this invaluable 17th century heirloom has graced European woodlands for centuries. It has strappy, linear foliage and strong, 12" to 15", rigid, upright stems with 15 to 20 pendant, bell-shaped flowers in the most beautiful shade of shimmering blue-violet with darker, marine-blue midveins. Previously classified as Scilla campanulata Excelsior

Previously classified as Scilla campanulata Excelsior, it thrives in most soil and sunlight conditions, although it prefers a bit of light shade or dappled sunlight. Widely used in both naturalized woodland settings and display gardens, this deer- and rodent-resistant naturalizer matures over the years, becoming increasingly more substantial and prolific.

When it’s really happy where planted, it can naturalize by both bulb offsets (baby bulbs on the sides of the mother bulb you’ve planted) and self-sowing seed. Really mature clumps of Excelsior can stretch taller, up to around 20". They impart a special look and feel to woodlands: kind of like a magical cross between a Wizard of Oz garden and a midsummer’s night dream.

You’ll need about nine bulbs per square foot. (Square footage is determined multiplying the planting site’s length times its width.) In woodland settings, you can also scatter-plant the bulbs about for a more natural look.

Bulb size: 8 cm/up. Full to partial sunlight. Bloom time in horticultural zone 5: May. Plant 4" deep and 4" apart. Horticultural zones 3-8. Height: 12" to 15".

Hyacinthoides hispanica (syn. Endymion hispanicus or Scilla hispanica), the Spanish bluebell, is a spring-flowering bulbous perennial native to the Iberian Peninsula. It is one of around 11 species in the genus Hyacinthoides, others including the common bluebell (Hyacinthoides non-scripta) in northwestern Europe, and the Italian bluebell (Hyacinthoides italica) further east in the Mediterranean region

It is distinguished from the common bluebell by its paler and larger blue flowers, which are less pendulous and not all drooping to one side like the common bluebell; plus a more erect flower stem (raceme), broader leaves, blue anthers (where the common bluebell has creamy-white ones) and little or no scent compared to the strong fragrant scent of the northern species. Like Hyacinthoides non-scripta, both pink- and white-flowered forms occur. Source

very beautiful plants i love lavander color 😍😍

That color red flowers also at the back looks cool..

@ctrl-alt-nwo, Really great to hear how you called these flowers as Spring Flower Bulbs and for sure, these flowers are beautiful and colourful and these flowers can spread the beautiful essence in lives. And many people tend to use different colorful flowers in Festive season and flowers makes the festive season an colorful season and also hold the welcoming essence.

Good to know and Informative to know that Bluebells are rarely affected by pests or diseases. In my opinion when plants are naturally protected then for sure it's an amazing aspect and may be people will choose this plant to grow in their garden to make the environment more magical.

One more informative point to know that these plant prefer the cooler Temperature and when we see lawns no matter where most of the times we see some breathtaking plants which attracts everyone and also spreads the beautify effect in the Environment.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂

Hyacinthoides hispanica or the 'Spanish Bluebell' as it is commonly known is the ultimate in low-maintenance perennial gardening. It pops up its fresh green head, rewards neglect with a fountain of blue, violet, pink or white flowers and then enters its enchanted sleep – until next year, when it repeats the whole performance yet again.


As you’d expect, all the colours are a perfect match, making it well worth mass-planting them for a symphony of soft colours in spring.

Alternatively, try interspersing Hyacinthoides hispanica (Spanish Bluebells) with contrasting yellow flowers for a tapestry of vibrant colour. Wonderful in woodland gardens or informal cottage gardens, they’re just as effective when surrounded by other blooms in a mixed border.

Bluebell flowers are dainty bulbous perennials that provide a profusion of color ranging from deep purple to pinks, whites and blues from April to mid May. Although some confusion may arrive from various English and Latin names, most bluebells are also known as wood hyacinths.England and have been gracing gardens and wooded areas with their beautiful bluish-purple flowers since the early 1500’s. These spring delights reach heights of 12 inches and can be planted in the fall for spring bloom. The flowers are fragrant and make a wonderful addition to any cut bouquet. An interesting feature of English bluebell is that the flowers are all on the same side of the stalk, and when gravity kicks in the stalk bends in a dainty curve.
The care of wood hyacinth plants requires minimal energy. These easy-to-please bulbs naturalize rapidly and prefer well-drained soil with a high organic content.Plant bluebell bulbs after the heat of summer has passed or in early fall. Several bulbs can be placed in the same 2-inch deep hole.

Hey there buddy! Their not filled with scapolamine (dragons breath drug) are they. They have a white version of this all over South America. I've seen them growing in the front yard of people's homes, on the side of the road.

Gang members have been known to process them, then blow the dust into tourists face. Under the influence you basically do what ever you are told. It's truth syrum. The gangsters then take the victim to the ATM machine and have them empty out their accounts.

Welcome to latin America! After over 12 years of international living and travel, everything, even these flowers reminds me of something from some where! lol

Hope you didn't my my story. Have a great day! From Odessa Ukraine- Dan

I don't think it has that drug in it. But if it did, maybe they should use it on the Banksters and the elites who rig the markets :)

Ha ha. I agree and I'm sure my dad would too! So glad you like his blog. He's really getting into it. Maybe he'll invest in steem, good price to get in....he's just very old school, and skeptical of the cryptos still. But he's enjoying himself here. Always good corresponding with you :) Have a great day! -Dan

Spanish Bluebell (Hyacinthoides hispanica) is a very beautiful annual plant! Each bulb produced attractive flowers, nodded, and bell shaped hanging from a sturdy round flower stalk, on top of a shiny rope-shaped leaf clump.865e2c658cbbe64c8cf9a73075ab52bb.jpg

Spain Bluebell is a reliable plant for landscapes, where it will happily double under conditions of optimal growth. Depending on cultivars, Spanish Bluebell is in shades of purple blue, lavender blue, pink or white. This usually forms clots up to 12-18 in height and width (30-45 cm).
Hyacinthoides hispanicaOptimized.jpg
This plant is easy to grow and is rarely affected by pests or diseases. This charming lover gives color and contrast to the forest park, bed boundaries, stone gardens and naturalized areas. In addition, it can be planted in a pot or container, and blends beautifully with other flowering bulbs.

Hyacinthoides hispanica, commonly called Spanish bluebell or wood hyacinth, is a bulbous perennial that is native to Spain, Portugal and northwest Africa. Each bulb produces a clump of 2-6 strap-shaped leaves from which rises a rigid flower stem typically containing up to 12-15 hanging, bell-shaped, bluish-lavender flowers held in an upright raceme. Flower stems rise to as much as 18” tall. Flowers typically bloom April to early May.

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Prefers sandy well-drained soils. Avoid unamended clay soils. Tolerates shady conditions. Perhaps best in sun-dappled part shade. Plant bulbs about 3-4” deep and 4-6” apart in the fall. Naturalizes well by both bulb offsets and self-seeding in optimum growing conditions. Plants go dormant by early summer. Plants of this species (Spanish bluebells) will hybridize with plants of Hyancinthoides non-scripta (English bluebells) if planted near each other, resulting in different forms appearing through self-seeding.

Spanish bluebells is a bulbous perennial native to Spain, Portugal and northwest Africa. It is a showy spring-flowering herbaceous plant with strap-shaped leaves and nodding, lavender, bell-shaped flowers on erect stalks that stand up to 18 in. high.

Plants become dormant by early summer. Previously known as Scilla campanulata and Scilla hispanica. It is currently documented to occur in the wild in Delaware, Virginia and North Carolina and may be underreported. Spanish bluebells is known to naturalize and spread, a feature appreciated and used by the horticulture industry as a marketing tool.

It poses a threat to native spring-blooming wildflower species already being heavily impacted by other non-native invasives like fig buttercup, garlic mustard, and nodding star-of-Bethlehem. For these reasons, it is a plant to keep an eye on and be prepared to remove if it is found invading natural habitats.

Bluebell Hyacinthoides non-scripta

Bluebells spend most of the year as bulbs underground in ancient woodlands, only emerging to flower and leaf from April onwards. This early spring flowering allows them to make the most of the sunlight that is still able to make it to their forest floor habitat and attracts the attention of plenty of pollinating insects. Millions of bulbs may exist in one bluebell wood, causing the blue carpets we so keenly associate with spring, and new plants are sometimes able to split off from these bulbs and grow as clones.

Beautiful modest flower. The plant has many names, it is hyacintoides, endymion, hyacintoid, Spanish scilla (scilla). Spanish proleska very similar to hyacinth, for which she received another nickname - wild hyacinth. The perennial flower is unpretentious and not exacting, it definitely deserves the attention of gardeners.

Bluebell flowers are flowers that are easily found in the Atlantic region of Spain and continue to rise to islands in the UK. This flower is not only beautiful, but also fragrant. Bluebell has a distinctive scent that may not be available from other flowers. In addition, bluebell flowers also have their own uniqueness. Unlike the other flowers that usually bloom facing the sky, bluebell flowers tend to grow curved so that the petals face down.

One of the most beautiful sights of our woodlands is to be seen from April each year when our beloved Bluebells spread a hazy, blue carpet under the trees and over grassy banks. These bulbous perennials have fleshy, glossy, linear leaves which are keeled and come from the root. At the tip of the leaves is a little hood. The long racemes or spikes of four-to-fifteen, drooping, tubular, purplish-blue flowers are one-sided, the leafless stems curving over gracefully. Each flower (14-20mm long) has cream anthers and six backward curving lobes. The latter point makes it easily distinguished from its competitor, the hybrid - Hyacinthoides x massartiana - between the introduced Spanish Bluebell (Hyacinthoides hispanica) and our native Bluebell. This hybrid has non-curving lobes and also differs in that its flowers are not in a one-sided spike. The anthers in the hybrid are blue. Bluebells bloom from April to May. The fruits are egg-shaped capsules with black seeds. This is a native plant belonging to the family Asparagaceae.

My first memory of Bluebells is seeing them on the road between Laragh and Glenmalure in Co Wicklow in the 1950's. I passed along that road recently and am happy to say they're still there. The photographs were taken at Wellingtonbridge Co Wexford in 2005.

If you are satisfied you have correctly identified this plant, please submit your sighting to the National Biodiversity Data Centre

I liked this flower very much. I saw it growing in our fields. A perennial bulbous ephemeroid plant 25-30 cm tall. The leaves are narrow, linear, gathered in the rosette. The flowers are blue-purple, pink or white; bell-shaped, with a diameter of up to 1.5 cm, are collected on the top of the peduncle in a racemose inflorescence. It blooms in late May-June.
The plant is light-requiring, but it is able to endure partial shade. Soils like well-fertilized, moderately wet, without stagnant water. Relatively winter-hardy, in conditions of central Russia needs a small shelter.
It belongs to the juvenile plant - once every three years it must be divided and transplanted. Propagated by bulbs and seeds.
Looks impressive in the form of small groups, an excellent cut plant. Thank you for an interesting post.

These unfussy members of the lily family are native to Spain and Portugal and we couldn't be happier to have them in gardens here in the States. Pretty, inexpensive, good for cutting, unfussy about light and soil, and able to thrive on neglect, they'll earn their keep in any garden. If you're just getting started with bulb gardening, this is a great place to begin.

For gardeners who really know their way around a trowel, you'll like these, too. First-rate naturalizers, Spanish bluebells reproduce by developing small offsets (baby bulbs) on the sides of the mother bulbs. They also produce seeds, allowing them, over time, to fill in and create ever larger patches of spring brilliance.


Great plants for difficult garden sites, just think how Spanish bluebells will respond to more hospitable conditions.

Deep violet-blue, darker and larger than most varieties of Hyacinthoides hispanica. Heirloom, 1906.

Formerly included with Scilla, Hyacinthoides is a small genus of spring-blooming bulbs from Europe and Asia. Its members are some of the most versatile and valuable because of their extraordinary willingness to prosper and bloom in sun to shade (some shade is required for satisfactory performances in the South).


They thrive in a wide range of climates and well-drained soils, although a site with ample moisture early in the growing season is the key to abundant flowers. They will spread discreetly but steadily, making a cheerful community, then disappear by midsummer. Because Hyacinthoides are later bloomers, they are useful in the transition from early-spring bulbs to the first June perennials.

hispanica (Mill.) Kerguélen) (SW-Eur., N-Afr.) – A locally naturalized garden escape. Surely over-recorded for the often exceedingly similar H. xmassartiana (see there). As a result of introgression Hyacinthoides hispanica may possibly disappear in favor of the latter in its Belgian locations.
Many diacritic features for their distinction (width of leaves, length of tepals,…) are variable and therefore unreliable. The characters provided in the key appear to be (more or less) unequivocal but are only useful in the field.


The specific status of Hyacinthoides hispanica is still controversial (Grundman & al. 2010). It has been combined under Hyacinthoides non-scripta in the past (see synonyms). Especially the ease with which introgressive hybridization between these two species occurs, suggests a very close relationship. According to Grundman & al. (2010) British (triploid) populations of Hyacinthoides hispanica do not correspond with autochthonous (diploid) material from southwestern Europe.

The exact origin of these vigorous plants and their taxonomic position compared to genuine Hyacinthoides hispanica needs further study.

An interesting feature of English bluebell is that the flowers are all on the same side of the stalk, and when gravity kicks in the stalk bends in a dainty curve. Spanish bluebells (Hyacinthoides hispanica) are similar in many ways to English bluebells apart from the fact that they bloom in open areas and are rarely found in woods. Spanish bluebell stalks are straight and do not display the curve as seen in English bluebells. Spanish bluebells do not have as strong a fragrance as English bluebells either and tend to bloom a bit later. Flowers can be blue, pink or white.

The care of wood hyacinth plants requires minimal energy. These easy-to-please bulbs naturalize rapidly and prefer well-drained soil with a high organic content. Like Virginia bluebells, wood hyacinths will thrive in shade or part-sun in the South and will tolerate full sun in northerly climates. Unlike some plants, bluebells will quickly multiply under the shade of large trees. Both English and Spanish Bluebells make excellent transition bulbs between early-spring bloomers and early summer perennials. Bluebells are excellent companions to hostas, ferns and other woodland native plants. Planting Bluebell Flowers Plant bluebell bulbs after the heat of summer has passed or in early fall. Several bulbs can be placed in the same 2-inch deep hole. Water the bulbs frequently over the fall and winter for best performance. Divide during the summer months, once the plant has gone dormant. Bluebells grow best when they are left to naturalize in shade gardens or woodland settings.

Spanish Bluebells (Hyacinthoides) Planting Guide

Thank you, Spain!
These unfussy members of the lily family are native to Spain and Portugal and we couldn't be happier to have them in gardens here in the States. Pretty, inexpensive, good for cutting, unfussy about light and soil, and able to thrive on neglect, they'll earn their keep in any garden. If you're just getting started with bulb gardening, this is a great place to begin. For gardeners who really know their way around a trowel, you'll like these, too. First-rate naturalizers, Spanish bluebells reproduce by developing small offsets (baby bulbs) on the sides of the mother bulbs. They also produce seeds, allowing them, over time, to fill in and create ever larger patches of spring brilliance. Great plants for difficult garden sites, just think how Spanish bluebells will respond to more hospitable conditions.

Outdoor Beds
Find a location where the soil drains well. If there are still water puddles 5-6 hours after a hard rain, scout out another site. Or amend the soil with the addition of organic material to raise the level 2-3 inches to improve the drainage. Peat moss, compost, ground bark or decomposed manure all work well and are widely available. If in doubt, give it a try - these bulbs are more forgiving of poor soil than most.
Spanish bluebells thrive in a variety of light conditions, from full sun to partial shade to dappled shade. Once established, they'll even do nicely in dry shade, a tough site for most plants.
Dig holes and plant the bulbs 4” deep and 4” apart. Position the bulbs with the pointy end facing up.
After planting, water well to settle the soil around the bulbs. Roots will form in the autumn. Leaves and flowers will develop in the spring.
When in bloom feel free to cut flowers for colorful bouquets. This will not hurt the plants.
After blooming has finished for the season leave the foliage in place; don't cut it off. The leaves will gather sunlight, create food through photosynthesis and strengthen the bulb for the future. Water as needed during active growth periods; about 1" of moisture per week is a good estimate.
By early to mid summer the leaves will yellow and die back as the plant slips into dormancy. The foliage may be removed at this point. Your bulbs will rest for a few months before beginning the next growing cycle.

Spanish X and wild English bluebells
I had to stare hard at these two photos above to tell the difference, but slght difference there is.

The plant on the left comes from my garden, while the plants on the right comes from a woodland bluebell grove nestled deep in the countryside, miles from the madding crowd.

The main differences between a Spanish bluebell and an English bluebell are:

On the Spanish flower, the bells are all round the stem, not just on one side which gives the English bluebell its drooping stature.
The leaves are wider and bigger.
The petals of each bell open wider and flare at the ends rather than curl.
The bells are slimmer on the English bluebell.
The stamen is blue on the Spanish version, and yellow on the English one.


The English bluebell is a deeper blue than the Spanish one, which is a delicate shade of pale blue.
The English bluebell is stronger scented.
The Spanish bluebell is taller.
The Spanish bluebell can tolerate sunshine and happily grows in open spaces, whereas the English bluebell prefers at least partial shade and is never found growing in open spaces.
Spanish bluebell flowers lift their heads towards the sun. English bluebells never

Bluebells

This small genus blooms best in a site with ample moisture in early spring. They spread discreetly but steadily. Bluebells are later bloomers, and useful in the transition from early-spring bulbs to the abundant show of June perennials. Both the Spanish Bluebell (Hyacinthoides hispanica) and the smaller, fragrant English Bluebell (Hyacinthoides non-scripta) are deer-resistant.

Hyacinthoides hispanica

Hyacinthoides hispanica (syn. Endymion hispanicus or Scilla hispanica), the Spanish bluebell, is a spring-flowering bulbous perennial native to the Iberian Peninsula. It is one of around 11 species in the genus Hyacinthoides, others including the common bluebell (Hyacinthoides non-scripta) in northwestern Europe, and the Italian bluebell (Hyacinthoides italica) further east in the Mediterranean region.

It is distinguished from the common bluebell by its paler and larger blue flowers, which are less pendulous and not all drooping to one side like the common bluebell.

blue-spanish-bluebell-big-56a584d35f9b58b7d0dd419c.jpg

The Spanish bluebell was introduced in the United Kingdom. Since then, it has hybridised frequently with the native common bluebell and the resulting hybrids are regarded as invasive. The resulting hybrid Hyacinthoides × massartiana and the Spanish bluebell both produce highly fertile seed but it is generally the hybrid that invades areas of the native common bluebell. This has caused the common bluebell to be viewed as a threatened species.

The Spanish bluebell is also cultivated as a garden plant, and several named cultivars exist with flowers in various shades of white, pink and blue.

A display worth waiting for

This year, the bluebells at Wakehurst were put 'on ice’ during an unseasonal cold snap. But they are now looking so magnificent that ITV Meridian sent a film crew and presenter Simon Parkin to broadcast the station’s weather forecast from down among the blooms.
National treasures

The carpet of deep blue is one of nature’s definitive markers that summer is just around the corner, so it is not surprising that the bluebell is one of the nation's best-loved wild flowers. The delicate blue flowers are actually bulbous herbs with flowering stems growing about 50cm tall. They spend most of the year as bulbs underground and emerge to flower from April onwards—at Wakehurst there are literally millions of bulbs scattered throughout our woodlands.
Asparagus plant family

Bluebells belong to the genus Hyacinthoides, which is in the Asparagacae plant family. As many as 20 sweetly-scented flowers can appear on a single flower stalk, which droops or nods to one side. The flowers are bell-shaped and can be blue, white or rarely even pink. Each flower has six petals with upturned tips.

At Wakehurst we try our best to keep our bluebells native. Patches of Spanish bluebells (Hyacinthoides hispanica) occasionally appear, but are quickly weeded out by horticulturists who don’t want them to interbreed with our traditional blooms. This non-native breed is threatening our own species. When garden waste is fly-tipped in the countryside Spanish bluebells become established, interbreeding with native blooms and changing future populations forever.
Important early nectar source

Almost half the world's population of bluebells grow here in the UK. You'll find them in broadleaved woodland, along hedgerows and in fields. Bees, hoverflies, butterflies and other insects love bluebells and feed on their nectar—their flowers providing an important early source of nectar. In fact bees can actually 'steal' the nectar from the bluebell flowers by biting a hole in the bottom of the bell, reaching the nectar without pollinating the flower.
Bluebell glue?

Bluebells have had several major uses throughout our history. Their sticky sap was used to bind pages into the spines of books and during the Bronze Age it stuck the feathers onto arrows, known as fletching. Also, bluebell bulbs were crushed to provide starch for the ruffs of Elizabethan collars and sleeves.

A final interesting fact about the bluebell is that in 1998 it was made illegal for anyone to sell native bluebells collected from the wild. This legislation was designed specifically to protect them from unscrupulous bulb collectors who might supply garden centres.

Spanish Bluebells is distinguished from the common bluebell by its paler and larger blue flowers, which are less pendulous and not all drooping to one side like the common bluebell; plus a more erect flower stem (raceme), broader leaves, blue anthers (where the common bluebell has creamy-white ones) and little or no scent compared to the strong fragrant scent of the northern species. Like Hyacinthoides non-scripta, both pink- and white-flowered forms occur.

Bluebell flowers are flowers that are easily found in the Atlantic region of Spain and continue to rise to islands in the UK. This flower is not only beautiful, but also fragrant. Bluebell has a distinctive scent that may not be available from other flowers. In addition, bluebell flowers also have their own uniqueness. Unlike the other flowers that usually bloom facing the sky, bluebell flowers tend to grow curved so that the petals face down.

Even so, when it blooms perfectly, bluebell flowers can also grow to face the sky and no longer hang. When it's like this, we can see the petals more clearly as seen in the photo above.

Bluebell Hyacinthoides non-scripta

Bluebells spend most of the year as bulbs underground in ancient woodlands, only emerging to flower and leaf from April onwards. This early spring flowering allows them to make the most of the sunlight that is still able to make it to their forest floor habitat and attracts the attention of plenty of pollinating insects. Millions of bulbs may exist in one bluebell wood, causing the blue carpets we so keenly associate with spring, and new plants are sometimes able to split off from these bulbs and grow as clones.

Spanish Bluebells: a Late-Blooming Spring Bulb
Growing tips and how they differ from similarly-named plants

blue-spanish-bluebell-big-56a584d35f9b58b7d0dd419c.jpg

Botanists now want us to call Spanish bluebells Hyacinthoides hispanica. But older names persist, including Scilla hispanica; they were also formerly placed in the Endymion genus. The package that you buy at the store may well be labeled Scilla campanulata -- yet another botanical name for the plant.

What the Plant Looks Like
Hyacinthoides hispanica is a spring bulb plant. The flowers are bell-shaped and about 3/4 inch long. The common name is something of a misnomer as the flowers are not a true blue.

Plant height (and the number of flowers per stalk) will vary according to factors such as the size of the bulb. During the first year that you grow these plants in your yard, the tallest plant may reach 16 inches, while the shortest may stand around 7 inches high (these heights include the floral stalk). Size may diminish in subsequent years. The foliage is basal and sword-shaped, forming a clump.

Planting Zones, Sun and Soil Requirements, Care
This spring-flowering bulb is suitable for growing in planting zones 3-8. The plant is indigenous to Southwestern Europe. Plant in fall to get blooms the following spring.

Bright day and beautiful blue color.

Spanish bluebells is a bulbous perennial native to Spain, Portugal and northwest Africa. It is a showy spring-flowering herbaceous plant with strap-shaped leaves and nodding, lavender, bell-shaped flowers on erect stalks that stand up to 18 in. high. Plants become dormant by early summer.


Previously known as Scilla campanulata and Scilla hispanica. It is currently documented to occur in the wild in Delaware, Virginia and North Carolina and may be underreported. Spanish bluebells is known to naturalize and spread, a feature appreciated and used by the horticulture industry as a marketing tool.

It poses a threat to native spring-blooming wildflower species already being heavily impacted by other non-native invasives like fig buttercup, garlic mustard, and nodding star-of-Bethlehem. For these reasons, it is a plant to keep an eye on and be prepared to remove if it is found invading natural habitats.

source

Hyacinthoides hispanica, or Spanish bluebells are one of the best spring bulbs. Any type of bluebell is a great addition to the garden, but Spanish bluebells put on a better show than most of the others. They flower later than other bluebells and are much taller, allowing them to make a big splash in the garden.

Hyacinthoides hispanica is a spring-flowering bulbous perennial native to the Iberian Peninsula. It is one of around 11 species in the genus Hyacinthoides.

It is distinguished from the common bluebell (Hyacinthoides non-scripta) by having its paler flowers all the way around the central stem while the common bluebell flowers are on one side and tend to bow over at the top with the weight of its flowers.

Hyacinthoides hispanica petals are less recurved and have blue anthers (where the common bluebell has creamy-white ones) and have little or no scent compared to the strong fragrant scent of the northern Hyacinthoides species. The leaves are also broader.


Where the Spanish bluebell has been introduced in the United Kingdom it has become an invasive species. The two species hybridise freely, and the resulting hybrid Hyacinthoides × massartiana. This hybrid and the Spanish bluebell both produce highly fertile seeds and can invade areas of the native common bluebell.

The Spanish bluebell is also cultivated as a garden plant, and several named cultivars exist with flowers in various shades of white, pink and blue.

Hyacinthoides hispanica, commonly called Spanish bluebell or wood hyacinth, is a bulbous perennial that is native to Spain, Portugal and northwest Africa. Each bulb produces a clump of 2-6 strap-shaped leaves from which rises a rigid flower stem typically containing up to 12-15 hanging, bell-shaped, bluish-lavender flowers held in an upright raceme. Flower stems rise to as much as 18” tall. Flowers typically bloom April to early May.

Hyacinthoides non-scripta

Hyacinthoides-hisp-Excelsior-Spanish-Bluebells16_570x700_crop_center.jpg
Hyacinthoides non-scripta (formerly Endymion non-scriptus or Scilla non-scripta) is a bulbous perennial plant, found in Atlantic areas from north-western Spain to the British Isles, and also frequently used as a garden plant. It is known in English as the common bluebell or simply bluebell, a name which is used in Scotland to refer to the harebell, Campanula rotundifolia. In spring, H. non-scripta produces a nodding, one-sided inflorescence of 5–12 tubular, sweet-scented violet–blue flowers, with strongly recurved tepals, and 3–6 long, linear, basal leaves.

Taxonomy
Hyacinthoides non-scripta was first described by Carl Linnaeus in his seminal 1753 work Species Plantarum, as a species in the genus Hyacinthus.[2] The specific epithet non-scriptus[Note 1] means "unlettered" or "unmarked" and was intended to distinguish this plant from the classical hyacinth of Greek mythology. This mythical flower, which was almost certainly not the modern hyacinth,[3] sprang up from the blood of the dying prince Hyacinthus. His lover, the god Apollo, shed tears that marked the new flower's petals with the letters "AIAI" ("alas") as a sign of his grief.

Description

Hyacinthoides non-scripta is a perennial plant that grows from a bulb.[8] It produces 3–6 linear leaves, all growing from the base of the plant, and each 7–16 millimetres (0.28–0.63 in) wide.
The bulbs produce contractile roots; when these roots contract, they draw the bulbs down into deeper layers of the soil where there is greater moisture, reaching depths of 10–12 cm (3.9–4.7 in).[13] This may explain the absence of H. non-scripta from some thin soils over chalk in South East England, since the bulbs are unable to penetrate into sufficiently deep soils.

Growing Bluebells: Care Of Wood Hyacinth Bluebells

blue-spanish-bluebell-big-56a584d35f9b58b7d0dd419c.jpg

Bluebell flowers are dainty bulbous perennials that provide a profusion of color ranging from deep purple to pinks, whites and blues from April to mid May. Although some confusion may arrive from various English and Latin names, most bluebells are also known as wood hyacinths.

Hyacinthoides-hisp-Excelsior-Spanish-Bluebells16_570x700_crop_center.jpg

English and Spanish Bluebells English bluebells (Hyacinthoides non-scripta) are native to France and England and have been gracing gardens and wooded areas with their beautiful bluish-purple flowers since the early 1500’s. These spring delights reach heights of 12 inches and can be planted in the fall for spring bloom. The flowers are fragrant and make a wonderful addition to any cut bouquet. An interesting feature of English bluebell is that the flowers are all on the same side of the stalk, and when gravity kicks in the stalk bends in a dainty curve.

sqScilla_white_hyacinthoides.DV_800x.jpg

Growing Bluebells The care of wood hyacinth plants requires minimal energy. These easy-to-please bulbs naturalize rapidly and prefer well-drained soil with a high organic content. Like Virginia bluebells, wood hyacinths will thrive in shade or part-sun in the South and will tolerate full sun in northerly climates. Unlike some plants, bluebells will quickly multiply under the shade of large trees. Both English and Spanish Bluebells make excellent transition bulbs between early-spring bloomers and early summer perennials. Bluebells are excellent companions to hostas, ferns and other woodland native plants.

Planting Bluebell Flowers Plant bluebell bulbs after the heat of summer has passed or in early fall. Several bulbs can be placed in the same 2-inch deep hole.

Hyacinthoides Hispanica (Scilla Campanulata)
Hyacinthoides Hispanica, a native of Spain and Portugal, can be easily identified against the English Bluebell. These Spanish types are much taller, they come in blues, whites and pinks. H. hispanica are effective in pots, borders and amongst shrubs and trees in shaded areas but we do not recommend planting them close to where native bluebells are growing.

Plant 10cm deep 7cm apart 150 per sq metre.

Also known as the Wood Hyacinth or Spanish Bluebells, this invaluable 17th century heirloom has graced European woodlands for centuries. It has strappy, linear foliage and strong, 12" to 15", rigid, upright stems with 15 to 20 pendant, bell-shaped flowers in the most beautiful shade of shimmering blue-violet with darker, marine-blue midveins.

Previously classified as Scilla campanulata Excelsior, it thrives in most soil and sunlight conditions, although it prefers a bit of light shade or dappled sunlight.

Widely used in both naturalized woodland settings and display gardens, this deer- and rodent-resistant naturalizer matures over the years, becoming increasingly more substantial and prolific. When it’s really happy where planted, it can naturalize by both bulb offsets (baby bulbs on the sides of the mother bulb you’ve planted) and self-sowing seed.

Really mature clumps of Excelsior can stretch taller, up to around 20". They impart a special look and feel to woodlands: kind of like a magical cross between a Wizard of Oz garden and a midsummer’s night dream. You’ll need about nine bulbs per square foot. (Square footage is determined multiplying the planting site’s length times its width.) In woodland settings, you can also scatter-plant the bulbs about for a more natural look.


Bulb size: 8 cm/up. Full to partial sunlight. Bloom time in horticultural zone 5: May. Plant 4" deep and 4" apart. Horticultural zones 3-8. Height: 12" to 15".

The UK’s native bluebell (Hyacinthoides non-scripta) grows only in the moist conditions of western Europe, thriving in the British Isles. Elsewhere it is only common in the north and west of France and is rare and in some localities an escape in Holland, Belgium and northwestern Germany.

It flourishes in our damp, mild climate – in fact, we boast a significant proportion of the world’s population. It's the quintessential plant of the woodland floor, its life-cycle closely linked to that of the trees it’s often found beneath. Each spring its leaves race to emerge and take advantage of open sunlight before buds burst in the canopy overhead.

Bluebells and woodland go hand in hand. A carpet of bluebells often hints at an area’s history as woodland, even if the trees are long gone, and their close association with ancient woodland in particular can provide an important clue to the age of a wood. And it’s not just trees that share a relationship with bluebells.


They are also a source of nectar for early emerging bumblebees and other insects, and a precious part of the UK’s cultural identity.

Botanists now want us to call Spanish bluebells Hyacinthoides hispanica. But older names persist, including Scilla hispanica; they were also formerly placed in the Endymion genus. The package that you buy at the store may well be labeled Scilla campanulata -- yet another botanical name for the plant.

The scientific names of plants are supposed to make our lives easier as gardeners, giving precision where there would otherwise be chaos. Usually, they live up to their mission statement.

Sadly, sometimes botanists have trouble figuring out what botanical name they wish to give a plant. The result is that older literature is littered with the rejected names, as the new name struggles to gain preeminence.

That does not exactly make our lives easier, now does it? Unfortunately, such is the case with Spanish bluebells.

What the Plant Looks Like
Hyacinthoides hispanica is a spring bulb plant. The flowers are bell-shaped and about 3/4 inch long. The common name is something of a misnomer as the flowers are not a true blue.
