Spanish Bluebell is a new flower to our Sunnyvale garden in 2019. We grow it in pots from 6 to 12 inches deep.
Hyacinthoides hispanica syn. Endymion hispanicus, syn. Scilla hispanica is the tallest and broadest leaved species with unscented bell shaped flowers scattered along the stem. It is native to Spain and Portugal and to northwest Africa and is often referred to as the Spanish bluebell. It is also sometimes called wood hyacinth.
It is known to hybridize with Hyacinthoides non-scripta and there are garden cultivars available in pink, white, and blue. It is considered to be an excellent garden plant that naturalizes or is an invasive weed, depending on your opinion.
