For each offer ordered, get 15For colourful blooms that emerge year after year with very little maintenance, try the perennial Spanish Blue and Pink Bells Mixture. The stout waxy stems produce both hanging bell and pyramid shaped bursts of pastel blue and soft pink blooms. Hyacinthoides hispanica looks great in a garden with pink azaleas, purple crocuses and white lilies.
Pink bluebell flowers do very well in hardiness zones 3 to 8, and these versatile plants thrive in both full sun and full shade. Plant these late spring bloomers in early fall, before the first frost. Place your Dutch-sourced blue and pink bluebells in groups about 4 inches deep and 4 inches apart in well drained soil. When they reach their full height, Hyacinthoides hispanica plants stand about 8 to 10 inches tall.
Low maintenance and extremely tolerant, Spanish bluebells naturalize easily and make an excellent ground cover. Use these plants to fill in areas around trees and shrubs. Since these gorgeous late spring flowers flourish in almost any part of your yard, even in areas where grass won't grow, they make a beautiful transition from lawn to flower beds. In the ground, in a vase or in a bouquet, these spring flowers add a lovely touch. Celebrate the transition to warmer weather with this Spanish Blue and Pink Bells Mixture.
