""Fears that the British bluebell could go extinct are unfounded, say scientists.
The introduced Spanish variety has lower fertility and is unlikely to wipe out the native plant, according to genetic tests.""

There now, isn't that good news. No mucky foreign invader will overcome our British bluebell.
Long may it cover our springtime woodlands with it's colour and gorgeous aroma. [eng1.gif]

I can categorically say the Bluebells this year have been the most widespread down here ever I reckon, there is simply millions of them, in the usual places just in adundance, no foreign bluebells are pushing their way into the West Country lol, And beautiful they are too.
