Hyacinthoides (Spanish Bluebells)
With their attractive strap-like leaves and sturdy stems that contain 15-20 very pretty bell-shaped flower pendants, Hyacinthoides Hispanica, also known as Spanish Bluebells, are not just firm favourites of gardeners and growers, but are also loved by bees, butterflies and other pollinators. Despite their name, Spanish Bluebells are available in several colours other than blue, including both pink and white varities.

Planting Spanish Bluebell Bulbs
Hyacinthoides Hispanica is the ultimate easy-to-grow, low-maintenance Spring bulb that really packs a punch when settled into its happy spot. A prolific naturaliser, these popular beauties multiply and spread easily, by both bulb offsets (baby bulbs on the sides of the mother bulb you’ve planted) and by self-seeding, returning year on year in even greater numbers. Spanish Bluebells tolerate shady conditions but thrive best in sun-dappled, part shade areas. Once planted they require little care or maintenance, and when planted in drifts produce a stunning and dramatic Springtime display in a relatively short time.
Where to plant Spanish Bluebell bulbs
Spanish Bluebells in all their colour variations, be it blue, white or pink, provide great ground cover and beautiful colour and contrast to a woodland garden, the front of borders, in rockeries as well as in wild or naturalised areas of gardens. Because of their excellent naturalising properties, Hyacinthoides Hispanica are especially effective when planted in large drifts under deciduous trees or at the edges of woodland gardens. Surprisingly versatile, Spanish Bluebells can also be grown effectively in pots and containers, either alone or in combination with other contrasting Spring flowering bulbs. They also make a delightful cut flower.
