As the year moves on and into May, bluebells come into their full magnificence. There are two varieties you are most likely to see: the native bluebell and the Spanish. And as in all things nature takes over and there is a hybrid of the two.
Spanish bluebells grow upright, with the flowers all around the stem, not drooping to one side like the British bluebell. Hybrid bluebell (Hyacinthoides x massartiana) is a mix of the British and Spanish bluebell. It is often very similar in appearance to our native bluebell, but might threaten its existence by out-competing it and diluting the gene pool.Woodland Trust
Bluebell woods are intertwined with fairy lore and enchantment.
It is also said that if you hear a bluebell ring, you will be visited by a bad fairy, and will die not long after. If you are to pick a bluebell, many believe you will be led astray by fairies, wandering lost forevermore.Woodland Trust
