Hyacinthoides hispanica "Excelsior"
Beautiful blue heirloom bells
Blooms early spring
Highly coveted 17th century heirloom variety. Shimmering blue-violet pendant bells with darker blue midveins bloom atop tall, sturdy stems, lending a magical feel to woodlands and shady borders. Also known as Wood Hyacinth or Spanish Bluebells, Hyacinthoides are happy in most conditions, but prefer a little light shade or dappled sunlight. Plants will mature over the years, and when very happy where they are planted, they can naturalize by bulb offsets or by self-sowing seed. Can reach heights of 15".
