Angiosperm!

This beautiful flower is commonly known as the bluebell. Its real name is Hyacinthoides non-scripta… that’s a mouthful.

This awesome flower was first discovered in 1753 by Carl Linnaeus. Be careful with these flowers because although they are very nice to look at they also contain glycosides and are poisonous. The sap of this flower can cause contact dermatitis… that doesn’t sound fun.
