Description

Virginia Bluebells are nothing short of breathtaking. 

They grow in clusters of tubular clear-blue flowers that flare out at the mouth from pink buds. To complete their beauty, lance-shaped foliage appears purplish-brown and will turn a medium green before becoming dormant after blooming. It branches occasionally, and the central stem is hairless and ordinarily light green. The leaves can get to be up to 7 inches long and 3 1/2 inches wide and are bright green or greyish green. These do very well with spring bulbs and are a perfect choice for borders. Virginia Bluebells typically bloom in early spring to mid-spring and will continue to bloom through early to mid-summer, depending on the weather conditions. They do best in well-drained soil.

Virginia Bluebells are ideal for filling in the gaps in your garden, and their color goes very well with magentas and reds.

It is essential not to over water Virginia Blue Bells, to not kill them. Virginia Blue Bells are very tolerant to many different kinds of atmospheres but once established; it is best not to move them, so you should plan where you want them. Virginia Bluebells bloom quite well whether propagated by seed or by division. It's best to plant divisions in October or wait until spring, preferably March or April. Virginia Bluebells develop very quickly during the spring, after the danger of frost has passed and foliage typically dies down by mid-summer. Bees cross-pollinate Virginia Bluebells, and they also attract butterflies, as they like to come for the nectar that the flowers abundantly produce.
This wildflower is excellent and beautiful when blooming. It will grow in fertile soils and is very adaptable to different types of soil conditions. They will start to thrive during March and flourish through April. This wildflower will be stunning and beautiful in a natural area or garden area. The small flowers will show out and be stunning when in bloom with their bright blue to almost purple color. Each stalk can become home to several bluebells at once. They look just like their name, small bells.

Mertensia Virginica also was known as Virginia Bluebells.

It is native to North America and can be found growing from the mid-west, west coast, east coast and even the middle part of the country. The blooms will appear from the central part of spring and last until the summer months. The leaves are long and can grow up to 7 inches long.
