Virginia Bluebells

Native to North America, this perennial plant is one of the prettiest wildflowers. Clusters of small, trumpet-shaped flowers nodding from a single sturdy stem look stunning in any garden location. Blooming starts in early to mid spring with the formation of pink buds that later mature into lavender-blue flowers.

We planted our bluebells all the way back in April 2015 and nothing happened. No sign of them last year either. Yet low and behold, they suddenly popped up for the first time about a week ago -- in early March 2017! They are amazing so don't give up on them, and know that it might take a couple of years before they really take off. They are worth the wait and talk about low maintenance, we thought they were dead so we actually abandoned that corner of the garden. No maintenance or weeding necessary for these beautiful bluebells!

I had some of these come up next to some tulips a few years ago and now they are multiplied within the drift of tulips - they look beautiful mixed in with the reds and oranges and really make the tulip colors stand out from the contrast. The Blue Bell leaves are the same color as the tulip leaves and people ask where I got the blue ones from! I would definitely plant more of these for spring color.

Order about 15 of these in 2013 and potted them until the rain let up. They were in pretty bad shape when I planted them. Thought I had seen the last of them but low- and-be-hold they are coming up absolutely wonderfully one year later. I am about the only one who has any in their garden here in the PNW as none of the garden centers have even heard of this flower. I am only too pleased!

I had one of these come up in my yard where I have never planted anything. It is so beautiful. I thought maybe it was some kind of weed but a friend said she thought it might be a bluebell. When I looked it up, it matches the description and picture of a Virginia Bluebell perfectly. However it got here, I'm glad it came.
