>Personally, I would love to see you post a photo of an "English Bluebell 

I added a couple of pictures to the wiki after we visited the UK in 2005 
and hiked in some place where they were in bloom. It was enchanting.

I've taken pictures of the "Spanish Bluebells"  we've been talking about 
since I noticed long ago that it wasn't on the wiki, but somehow have never 
gotten it added. In my northern California garden it is dependable, but not 
weedy. I'm not sure why it would increase more in other Pacific Northwest 
areas than it does here. Maybe mine are too shady. But once again what is a 
weed in some areas is not in another.

I planted Alstroemeria that Roy Sach gave me and they rarely bloom, but do 
spread more than I'd like for a non blooming plant. I think we discussed 
why they might not do well for me and concluded they preferred better soil 
and more fertilizer. I'm not sure how you'd dig them out to the ground to 
share without damaging them but Carolyn can try.
