Brief Summary

Read full entry
Bluebells are sometimes called forest bluebells because they grow abundantly in woods and forests. Originally, the bluebell was probably imported to the Netherlands as a decorative plant and gone wild. In the meantime, it is totally natural to find it in the woods on Texel, in the Holland Dunes, on Walcheren, in Friesland and along the river Vecht. It grows best in shaded areas, not liking direct sunlight. In the Dennen on Texel, there are places where it flowers so massively in the spring, that the forest floor turns blue. Bluebells are a stinsen plant.
