Hyacinthoides hispanica

Manx Name:

Port St Mary Scarlett Point

Native to Spain, this flower has become quite invasive and tends to outcompete and hybridise with the native bluebells (Hyacinthoides non-scripta).

Spanish bluebells can be distinguished from the native species by their relative lack of scent, their ability to form pink and white flowers (native bluebells are always blue) and by the slightly larger and shorter flowers.

The Manx name for this flower is "Gleih-much Spaainagh".
