It's also known as Goblins, witches' or Pucks Thimble, and was traditionally linked to faries, witches and the Devil; and "should be picked at your peril". In Scotland it is commonly known as the Scottish Bluebell, as it is so widespread, although it is equally abundant in England and Wales.
The juice was an element in some of the witches 'flying ointment'. The name Harebells may also allude to a folk belief that witches used juices squeezed from this flower to transform themselves into Hares.
The widely distributed Harebell is easily identifiable by its fragile blue flowers that are shaped like bells and heart shaped leaves. Harebells generally grow in clumps which flower during July to September.
