Plant Overview

A British native wildflower which is very happy in the garden. Masses of violet-blue, bell-shaped flowers in late summer and autumn.

A natural meadow plant, although it’s ideal for growing in a mixed herbaceous border and works well in cottage-garden and wildlife-friendly planting schemes. 

The name harebell is thought to refer to its prevalence in meadows frequented by hares. Indeed, legend has it that witches would turn themselves into hares and hide among the flowers.

Common harebell is the county flower of Dumfriesshire, Yorkshire and County Antrim.

Height and Spread: 40cm x 45cm.

Common names: Harebell; English Harebell; Fairy Thimble; Ding-Dongs; Witches Thimble.

Also known as Scottish bluebell and bluebell of Scotland.

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow almost everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
