Not bluebells

Took a stroll round Morpeth's Bluebell Woods, ablaze with colour at the moment.

Re: Not bluebells

I'm just waiting for people to post shots of Spanish bluebells.

I read recently that the next generation could be the last to see our native bluebells, because of hybridisation.

Re: Not bluebells

It's quite hard to tell if it's a hybrid or a native isn't it? The pure Spanish are easy to spot.

Yes, looking at the images in the current 'Bluebells' thread I feel there's a touch of Spanish in them. The bells look too flared for a pure native.

Re: Not bluebells

The woods must look lovely John - I enjoyed seeing the Barren Strawberry, such an interesting plant.

Re: Not bluebells

Thanks Lyn. Yes, the woodland floor in some places is a carpet of white & blue.

Re: Not bluebells

Grand shots John. I was looking at the Barren Strawberry or Wood Avens on a wild food site just the other day. It can be lifted for its roots and then re-planted.

Re: Not bluebells

More than one plant gets called Barren Strawberry. This one is Potentilla sterilis, that Wood Avens is a Geum apparrently.
