Are bracteate bluebells fairly common in wild populations? 
I came across a lovely one today in woods near home, with blue tips to the large bracts.
No camera so no photos unfortunately.

I donīt think so, though I know only our local spots, some in Belgium and some in Britain. I rather think You may gratulate Yourself, as they are sought-after collectorīs items.  :)

Robert, just by chance I started growing Phacelia campanularia, too: a friend gave me a packet of seeds. Your pics make me very eager to see these exciting flowers here, too!

Today we arrived in Sweden, where I found Fritillaria imperialis flowering in a very odd place: a shrubbery, close to a horse-chestnut.


Hyacinthoides italica is growing there in large numbers, too - a plant very rarely seen in Germany.

Haberlea rhodopensis Virginalis seems to like its position
in the mossy Tufa.
Anemone nemorosa Vestal grows rather slow and flowers
later than the normal form.
