Months later, they have appeared and they are Spanish bluebells. Just a word of warning. I suppose I should have known. These are what came up:

    Put a review on Amazon. People do read them.

    I have just submitted a review. However the seller might create a new listing later this year so that there are no reviews and they can sell Spanish ones again. If they use the same listing and they're back in stock hopefully the review will help some people.

    I agree - I certainly read them.
    I'd also contact Amazon for a refund.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    I will try to contact Amazon when their customer service goes back to taking calls. Thank you.

    Perhaps also worth contacting the seller with your pictures. The worst they can do is ignore it. Most of their feedback is positive and it looks like a legit UK seller (not like the multicolour roses from China nonsense) so it could have been a genuine mistake.
