The bluebell flower represents and symbolizes gratitude, humility and constancy.

And in the language of flowers, the bluebell flower is a symbol of humility, constancy, gratitude and everlasting love.

It is said that if you turn a bluebell flower inside-out without tearing it, you will win the one you love, and if you wear a wreath of bluebells you will only be able to speak the truth.

Bluebell flower bulbs contain a starch that in Elizabethan times was used to stiffen ruffs.

Gum from the roots of the bluebell flower was used to glue feathers to arrows & in bookbinding.

Bluebell flower juice was said to cure snake bites, but is chemically very potent & can be toxic in large doses.

More specifically lilac or purple bluebells represent gratitude, white bluebells symbolize purity and spirituality, blue-colored bluebells represent humility and constancy, and pink is the perfect choice for conveying feelings of everlasting love.

The blubell flower also known as Hyacinthoides non-scripta is a bulbous perennial plant, found in Atlantic areas from north-western Spain to the British Isles, and also frequently used as a garden plant.

It is known in English as the common bluebell or simply bluebell, a name which is used in Scotland to refer to the harebell, Campanula rotundifolia.

English bluebells (Hyacinthoides non-scripta) are native to France and England and have been gracing gardens and wooded areas with their beautiful bluish-purple flowers since the early 1500's.

These spring delights reach heights of 12 inches (30 cm.)

Bluebell flowers usually flower from late March to early May, but it does vary from year to year.

They bluebell flower is one of the last spring flowers to bloom before the woodland canopy closes up and new leaves block out the sunlight.

If spring is mild, bluebell flowers will respond by flowering earlier.

All parts of the bluebell flower plant, especially the bulbs, are considered toxic to horses and most other animals as well as humans.

Bluebell poisoning is a sickening of horses after ingesting a weed also known as English Bluebells, common bluebells, Endymion non scriptus, Scilla non scripta or wild hyacinths.
