Product Description

Scilla campanulata Blue, better known as the Spanish bluebell, is a long-standing favourite that will strike a cheerful note in your garden in spring. It produces clumps of lavender-blue, bell-shaped flowers, each with a centre of pretty blue anthers and a darker hue to the petal spines.

Flowers grow around the whole stems, which are tubular and upright. Blooming in April and into May, these hardy bulbs can create an enchanting carpet of nodding blue flowers when naturalised in drifts through grassy or wooded areas. They are equally effective as underplanting for hedges or shrubs, or for adding interest to borders before summer interest appears. Scilla campanulata Blue is also ideal for growing in containers and makes a beautiful cut flower.

Fully hardy, resilient and easy to grow, the bulbs form clumps with a height and spread of up to 45cm. By early to mid-summer, the foliage dies back and the plants lie dormant through autumn and winter, re-emerging the following spring in ever-greater numbers. The clumps produce small offsets, which can be divided and replanted in the summer to encourage a wider spread or for populating new areas.

Supplied as a pack of 25 bulbs for planting out straight away, they are best planted in groups. Combine them with bright yellow daffodils for a wonderful contrast.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Plant as soon as you receive your bulbs, as early as you can in autumn so that the bulbs can establish a good root system before winter.
  • Place around the base of a tree, where they will naturalise just like in the wild.
  • Remove offsets, or divide large clumps, for replanting.

Care Guide

  • Plant 10cm deep, 10-15cm apart.
  • Water well after planting.
  • Scilla campanulata Blue thrive in a variety of light conditions, although blooms may fade in full sun.
  • Ideal for shaded or semi-shaded areas, either in sheltered or exposed positions.
  • Best planted in moist, well-drained soil, although will tolerate drought.
  • Leaves can be removed once they have yellowed and died back.
