Spanish Bluebells (Blue Wood Hyacinth)
Details15-20" tall. Late spring blooming. Spanish Bluebells are superb bulbs, with a hardy constitution that allows them to thrive in dry shade under deciduous trees. Spanish Bluebells have large, impressive flowers that will poke up through taller shade loving groundcovers like Vinca. They should also be planted with late flowering Daffodils like 'Primeur' for an unforgettable combination.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
