hyacinthoides non-scripta- English Bluebell

Formerly called endymion non-scriptus, and scilla nutans.

The bluebell really doesn’t need any introduction and this is the genuine english bluebell not the european variety which is taking over in the wild

This popular, hardy bulbous spring flowering plant is thought of as britain’s national flower and will become extinct if we allow the european variety to take over
