Native and Spanish bluebells

bluebell_types

Bluebells have appeared on the Heath early this year and there are two general types – native and Spanish, but can you tell the difference?  The picture (above left} shows the Spanish type which is more prolific with upright stems, no scent and bell-shaped flowers with open tips.

The native type on the right have a droop at the top, a sweet perfume and narrow bell-shaped flowers with rolled back tips.
