Least Bluet Plant is a Hardy Blooming Perennial
Least Bluets – Houstonia grow in tight clusters, resembling a light blue, outdoor carpet. Least Bluets thrive in a moist, slightly-acidic and humus-wealthy soil. This plant is usually found in somewhat shaded areas, but with moderate watering, can efficiently flourish almost anywhere. While often found naturally, are a great addition to any garden. They can be used as a filler for sparse spaces around potted plants, to line a landscaped path, or stand in a small meadow of their own. They are a charming and dainty option that will lend a delicate pop of color to your flower bed, while still being relatively easy to grow and care for.
Least Bluets Grow in Abundant Patches in Somewhat Shaded Areas such as Woodlands
Least Bluets grow in abundant patches, generally found in somewhat shaded areas, such as woodlands. However, given their compliant nature, seeds dispersed by wind and animals will usually allow for them to spring up in other places. They have short stalks (generally only 1-3 inches in height). They are characterized by their pop of color, which may vary in shade from a periwinkle blue, to pale pink, lavender, or white. More specifically, they are called Quaker lady bluets, supposedly due to their beautiful petal shape and its similarity to traditional hats worn by women of the Quaker faith.
These enchanting little blooms aren't picky, either. They take seed quite easily and maintain resilience season after season. They are also easy to transplant; merely dig up a clump, and move to your desired location. Take care, however, that it isn't the hottest part of the day when you do this to prevent the odds of them further wilting mid-transplant. The ideal location is one that is partly sunny, partly shady.
They are native to North America but are typically associated with Zone 4 and Zone 8, depending on the particular strain of the plant. Nevertheless, they are also a hardy bloom, and will usually survive the surprise freezing temperatures cool Spring nights can render. If you intend to transplant Least Bluets flowers from a separate patch, it is advisable to wait until a time when it is almost certain the chance of frost has passed, despite their natural vitality. With just a little consideration, these low maintenance perennials will provide your landscaping with a whimsical, but practically simple fairy-tale touch.
