I submitted a photo to Plant Files just yesterday of my patch of bluebells. I have put in quite a few over the years because the nurseries here have them this time of year and then dump them for practically nothing once they've bloomed because, as you know, once they've bloomed, they disappear completely. The garden centers tell me most folks don't want a plant that blooms, then disappears for the season, so I have bought them for around 25 cents each after the bloom is gone and foliage starts to go.
