Scottish Bluebells

Officially, according to wild flower books, in Scotland the wild flower known as a Harebell is the Scottish Bluebell . What is generally referred to as a Bluebell south of the Border is the Wild Hyacinth. Now, isn't that confusing?
Have to say, don't know any Scot who doesn't call these Harebells and those of the woods, Bluebells.

Harebells have lovely, delicate, thimble-like flowers scattered down wirey stems and are as beloved by bees as are the other Bluebells.

Yes, the Harebell belongs to the same family. Its fancy name is Campanula rotundifolia.
