The wild native bluebell should not be mistaken for the Spanish bluebell Hyacinthoides hispanica or the hybrid H. massartiana. The two most reliable ways to identify a true native Bluebell are to check that its anthers on the stamens are cream, not pale blue and that the inflorescence (the arrangement of the flower heads on the stem) drops at the tip and has flowers hanging to one side.
