Here’s a quick guide to the different types of Bluebell found at Love Lane…
Above is the native ‘english’ variety… note the drooping stalks which give it it’s characteristic look. It’s generally found in the woods or in shaded areas.
This is the ‘spanish’ variety… straight stalks and flower bells all around, it’s generally found out on open ground.
Finally, above is a very rare variety, to my knowledge only found at Love Lane… It took me a while to identify: It’s common name is ‘Bluebells attacked by a muppet with a paint spray can’. Hopefully we won’t see too many more of these.
