The common bluebell flowers in April and May. The stems are 10-30 cm long and bend over at the top. The lavender-blue flowers are pendulous, tubular with the petals recurved only at the end. The individual flowers are borne on one side of the flowering stem only.
How surprised was I? to find this touch of magic whilst walking round the Sculpture Park on a chilly March morning.
