Virginia Bluebells

Beloved Native Wildflower

In mid-spring, large clusters of bell-shaped, sky blue flowers bloom atop 16- to 24-in. stems. This beloved native wildflower looks particularly striking when planted en masse—or planted next to ferns in full to partially shaded areas. Top choice for beds and borders or shady woodland gardens. Grows 1- to 2 ½-ft. tall. Zones 3-9.
