Bluebells

Bluebells

Common Name: Bluebell

Latin Name: Hyacinthoides non-scripta

Description: Up to 20 bell shaped flowers on a sturdy stem. Wonderful perfume.

Season: mid April to late May

Colour: Blue, sometimes white

More Information: Bluebells like the shade of woodland, but where the woods have gone, particularly on north facing slopes, they can still be found on open land – a memory of woodland.

Location: Almost anywhere in west Wales but spectacularly on north facing coast slopes such as the one above Poppit Sands heading towards Newport on the coast path.
