If you happen to be in Europe in spring, this is the beautiful wildflower you'll see in Spain's woodland areas. The wild form is purple/blue, and it has so many common names we can't list them all! Some call it Spanish Bluebell, others insist it's English Wood Hyacinth, and others just call them Scilla. This famous wildflower even has several botanical names.

But whatever you call it, you'll love the nodding flowers and the plant's habit of spreading into larger and larger clumps. It's great in bulb gardens, perennial borders, along walks--anywhere you'd like lovely spring color year after year. And if you have a woodland area, it's a great naturalizer.

Our bulbs are actually the Spanish Bluebell type, and they are somewhat larger and different from English Bluebells. In fact, the Spanish type have been planted in England and there is concern there since the Spanish variety is crossing with the English type, and some conservationists there are concerned the Spanish 'Invader' will overwhelm the native English Bluebell. Fortunately, we have no problem here in No. America, since we have no native species. The Dutch breeders ship us the Spanish type since they are the larger flowers, and now available in several colors.

        Comments about American Meadows Wood Hyacinth Bulbs Blue:

        I planted this wood hyacinth variety two falls ago after seeing a wonderful glade full of blue hyacinth while visiting the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens with my niece. They bloom as the daffodils are fading, extending the spring bloom season. The color is lovely and the blooms long-lasting. Our rapacious deer don't touch them. The bulbs are small and easy to plant, and the clumps are even fuller this year than last. In short, I can't find anything wrong with them!
        Last fall I ordered wood hyacinth from another reputable supplier. while the color was good, I was disappointed by their comparatively short stature and spindly leaves, so I am back to American Meadows for more!

            USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

            To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

            • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
            • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
