              It's a British bluebell, but a white variant. Apparently 1 in 10,000 are the odds, but when you consider how many plants are in a bluebell wood they're not that rare. I always see a few every year.

                    I'm looking at the shape, not the colour - I do like a white bluebell though! I thought the native ones all drooped and the hybrid ones were straighter.

                    I find that the characteristic droop doesn't happen until the flower is fully out, this one is only just emerging, I can confirm it was identical to all of the bluebells except for colour.
