Bellflower Plant (Uvularia grandiflora)

Bellflower Plant: Uvularia grandiflora, the bellflower plant, is a perennial woodland species native to eastern and central North America. Due to its early spring arrival, many gardeners include this lovely yellow flower in their landscape plan. In some USDA growing zones, it blooms for about two weeks as early as March--a welcome sight for winter-weary eyes.

If this plant seems familiar, but the name doesn't sound right to your ears, you may better recognize it by one of its many names. Here are a few others:

  • Large bellwort
  • Large flower bellwort
  • Large-flowered bellwort
  • Merry bells
  • Great merry bells
  • Yellow bellwort

Each of these nicknames comes from the sunny yellow, bell-shaped flowers.

Where to Grow the Bellflower Plant

As a native to the lush forests across the eastern United States, the bellflower perennial plant prefers filtered sun to a full shade location. It will accept a couple of hours of full morning sunshine despite the shade preference.

It also likes soil that compares to what it would have in the forest--lots of rich, woody material. Think about adding compost, shredded leaves, and hardwood mulch. Bellflower is an excellent companion plant with other forest species, such as ferns and peat moss.

Bellflower can tolerate short periods of dryness and heat. However, it prefers well-draining soil with some moisture. You might need to water it during summertime's hot spells.

Besides optimizing these growing conditions, the bellflower plant is self-sufficient and resilient. Once established, you will enjoy it without much intervention.

Use bellflowers in a shade garden, rock garden, or natural area. But leave space--it will soon colonize and give you lots of baby bellflowers to dig up and use throughout your property or share with friends.

The Sunny Look of Bellflowers

Bellflower leaves reach about six inches long and two inches wide, forming a pale green lance shape. They encircle the green stem and have an interesting fine white fuzz on the bottom.

The cheery yellow flowers form a cone shape and then gracefully droop, forming an elongated bell shape. Each flower has six petals, emitting a soft, fresh floral fragrance.
