Edible and gorgeous, decorate your garden with its bell-shaped flowers. Don’t let looks fool you; this is not a dainty, delicate plant!
Also known as Scottish Bluebell, this wildflower is common around Europe and Asia. Its natural habitats are usually dry environments, like hills, slopes, dunes, and windy coasts, and it can usually be spotted in the wild between July and September.
Its lilac-blue bell-shaped flowers and slender stems make its identification easy. Its characteristic foliage begins round at the base of the stem and gets progressively narrower and slender as they move up towards the flowers. Some pale pink and white flowers may occasionally occur. It has paper-like petals, and despite its delicate looks, it’s actually a sturdy and resilient plant. This edible greenie grows between 6-16 inches (15-40 cm).
