bluebells english native scilla nutans non-scripta woodland naturalising in the green near me
Variety: English Bluebells (Scilla Nutans non-scripta)
Flowering height: 12 ins
Month: April into May
Clare Bulb Co comment: a wonderful bulb to grow in their natural habitat, which is in dappled shade, beneath trees, especially deciduous trees, and by water. They like to be planted quite deeply, in the wild being 12 inches down, or more. The bulbs must be moist in the summer, which explains the depth at which they grow. Bluebells spread over time if they like where they are.
