These jumbo-sized bulbs have been harvested by hand and are possibly the largest bluebell bulbs you can get (typically size 12/14). Top-quality jumbo bulbs means healthy, quick-to-establish, super-strong plants – you’ll most certainly see the difference! When a plant has the name ‘Excelsior’, you can safely rely on the fact that it’s going to be big, upright and strong, just like this dashing individual. The  plucky bluebell Hyacinthoides hispanica 'Excelsior' has an efficient and robust nature and thrives in sun or deep shade, which makes it makes it the perfect spring flower for filling a good space in a difficult location, such as under trees or large shrubs. It’s also highly impressive in borders or large patio containers, naturalising over the years to create a bold and alluring tide of blue. 

These giant Spanish Bluebells are very good naturalisers. The flowers are the same distinctive blue as a traditional English bluebell, only taller and more sturdy. But because they naturalise more rapidly than English bluebells, it’s best not to plant them together. If you want to create a display of mixed pastels, try combining them with other pink and white Spanish Bluebells.
