  • Common Name: Bluebell (English Bluebell, Spanish Bluebell)
  • Latin Name: Hyacinthoides non-scripta/Hyacinthoides hispanica

The glycosides found in Bluebells are thought to be similar to those in Digitalis (Foxglove), causing symptoms from shallow breathing to slowed heart rate and lethargy; so avoid your tortoise ingesting this plant. 

Mainly blue or blue/purple flowers but there are white and pink varieties too.  See Hyacinth.
