(Endymion nonscriptus (L.) Garcke)

34. Bluebell

A wood filled with bluebells is one of the beauties of the countryside which we are all anxious to preserve. Expert botanists now consider that picking a few flowers from the edges of a clump will not do much harm as long as care is taken to avoid damaging the leaves. If the leaves are trampled upon while in full growth the plants will die for certain. In the west country the bluebell grows on cliff tops as well as in woods.
