Vivacious Springtime Virginia Blue Bells

  • North American Native
  • Shade-Loving, Flowering Bulb
  • Color-Changing Blooms
  • Fast Growing

A perfect, shade-loving flower, the Virginia Blue Bells (Mertensia virginica) is a native plant to the eastern United States, and can be grown throughout much of the country.

The plant stands upright, reaching up to 2 feet tall, and produces arching ends with pendulous clusters of bell-shaped flowers. It looks more beautiful than it sounds too and your whole neighborhood will be able to attest to that!

The flower buds emerge in a pink color and gradually turn to their lovely shade of light blue, as they open fully and mature, while blooming through the Spring.

Beneath the Virginia Blue Bells blooms lies the large, green, oval leaves of this attractive perennial.

Virginia Blue Bells is a very hardy plant and will even grow beneath Black Walnut trees! You will have no worries about anything stopping this flower from standing out amongst the crowd!

Plant your lovely flowers in well-drained soil with partial shade to full shade for the best, healthy growth possible, while also enhancing the overall physical appearance of your landscaping!

The flowers and foliage are both deer and rabbit resistant. However, pollinators will still love the plant, and butterflies, moths and bees will flock to the small blooms. And who can really blame them? This flower is absolutely stunning!

Just imagine the Virginia Blue Bells planted in natural clumps in shaded areas of your landscape or lined along a wandering path.

Make that a reality today by ordering your very own Virginia Blue Bells today at Nature Hills Nursery! It will be a landscaping changing decision!
