The native Bluebell is one of our best known wild flowers and when in bloom en masse creates a uniquely British floral experience of colour and scent.  The plant stands between 25-40cm in height and produces a large head of up to 30 blue flowers.  Bluebells are most commonly found in woodlands but can also be seen growing in bracken covered pastures in the uplands, in lowland hedge banks and on cliffs in the North and West.  They are most abundant in acid soils of pH 3.5 to 5 but also grow in neutral soils - they are seldom recorded in soils with a pH above 7.5.

Unlike the Spanish and hybrid bluebells, the native plant has narrow leaves with nodding flowers mostly down one side of the stem.  The Bluebell bulbs we send out are all of flowering size but the re-planting can disturb them and delay flowering for a year. The flower exploits the light phase before the development of full leaf canopy.  Shade in the summer months is important as it restricts competition from other species. The plant is characteristic of moist, freely drained sites.

Bluebells are a preferred nectar source for the Brimstone and Pearl-Bordered Fritillary butterflies and also important for bees.
