Bluebells Posted on May 1, 2015 by Debra Kolkka I came upon this abandoned garden where bluebells have taken over…lovely. They can take over my garden any time they like. Share this:TwitterFacebookMoreEmailPinterestPrintLinkedInLike this:Like Loading... Related
Love them Deb! We only ever have a couple growing in our yard!
We don’t have any at Casa Debbio, perhaps we are too high. I can admire them in other gardens.
They would be lovely up at Vergemoli…..do you have any planted up there?
We don’t have any at Casa Debbio and I haven’t seen any in Vergemoli. I will try planting some in autumn.
I agree with you, they are lovely. They must belong to the Italian bluebell variety, which is different from the Northern European one. This is why they grow so well in the wild.
Exactly – the Italian wild bluebell is scientifically” Hyacinthoides Italica” while our British variety is “Hyacinthoides nonscripta” and has thicker flowers. They both flower roughly at the same time, however, in their respective countries.
Did you know that in the UK it’s illegal to pick wild bluebells
Fines of up to £100 are payable especiallyif they are picked from London open spaces – the best flowers are at Bostall woods SE18
These are beautiful, and I love the color!
They are gorgeous. I love it when they appear.
They are very dainty little flowers.
These are so sweet…..I love nature!
I love nature when it looks like this.
What a lovely discovery. I love this.
They are in a garden in La Villa. I wonder if anyone lives there.
Glorious! There’s something about ‘blue’ in the garden….always lovely. We don’t have many bluebells here in Brisbane, Australia…..but we do have heaps of blue agapanthas and they’re beautiful too!
I have planted agapanthus at Casa Debbio. We may be a little high and cold, but I can try.
Be careful what you wish for. Some species of bluebell go rampant and take over your garden completely, leaving you with slowly rotting leathery leaves covering everything for months. Those pictured look to belong to the aggressive variety!
They are not in my garden. I think our wild goats may take care of any rampant growth.
