Virginia Bluebells is a native woodland plant that grows naturally on rich, moist forest floors. It is one of the easiest wildflowers to grow. The flower buds open to 1” long trumpet-shaped flowers, loved by butterflies. It prefers shade but does well with morning sun. You might want to combine it with hostas and ferns, since it dies back after it flowers. Once the plant is established it does not like to be disturbed. Add it to an existing wooded area or create your own woodland garden. Dappled shade and humus-rich soil provide perfect growing conditions.

To plant bare root perennials, dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2” below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly.

Supplied as #1 sized bare root.
