Hi, how common are white bluebells. The reason I am asking is because although I have had bluebells for about 8 years, this spring, for some reason, a group have come up white !

They are all grown in a semi shady spot



its not unknown, as are pink variations. how often they happen in the wild I dont know but as a child i remember a clump in Finchael Woods in county durham. the shade wont make a difference.
The blue may have seeded and some are now old enough to flower and by a quirk of genetics are white. lucky you.

Yes, I have white, pink and blue - all English Bluebells. The white seem to be more prolific this year, for some reason.
