English Bluebells are vigorous perennial bulbs that produce small clumps of strap-shaped leaves bearing arching nodding bell-shaped violet-blue flowers. They have a long blooming period from mid to late spring and go dormant by summer. They are effortless to grow, require minimal care, and look gorgeous massed in a wooded area. They will naturally multiply on their own bringing you many years of spring cheer!
