The song on which this rondo is based was written by the actress Dorothea (Dora) Jordan. The production in which it was first performed remains to be identified.

Originally named The Blue Bell of Scotland (a tangential reference to an inn mentioned in the song) it was quickly adopted into the folk tradition and rechristened after the Scottish flower.
