Description
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.
