Hyacinthoides genus (Bluebell). This genus consists of spring-flowering bulbs. They are suitable for growing in borders and for naturalizing in the grass beneath trees and shrubs. The leaves are strap to lance-shaped and basal. The flowers are usually blue or white and sometimes they can be pink. They are fully hardy and will require partial shade and plenty of moisture. They will prefer heavy soil. You should plant the bulbs in the autumn 10-15cm deep. Propagation is by division in late summer or by seed in the autumn.
