Virginia Bluebells (Mertensia virginica)

Virginia Bluebells: Mertensia virginica or Virginia bluebells are hardy, early spring bloomers that are a site for winter-weary eyes in the earliest days of spring.

The native perennial wildflowers stem emerges from the ground on the first warm days, often when a light coating of snow still dusts the earth. Because they are early-spring risers, TN Nursery suggests Virginia bluebells to any gardener looking for color earlier in the growing season.

Virginia bluebells are cold-hardy and heat-tolerant. They flourish in full shade and partially shady locations in almost every growing zone in the contiguous United States--even in hotter climates.

Where to Grow Mertensia virginica

Virginia bluebells ask for very little from the gardener. Besides a semi-shaded spot with soil that drains well, it benefits from fertilizing twice yearly and watering during extended dry spells. It's as easy for beginning gardeners to succeed with this lovely flower as seasoned pros.

Grow Virginia bluebells in these garden settings:

  • Native species garden
  • Cutting garden
  • Shade garden
  • Butterfly, hummingbird, or pollinator garden
  • Border plantings
  • Mass plantings
  • Fairy Garden
  • Along the shady banks of a creek or pond

The Country Charm of Virginia Bluebells

Great things, the adage says, come in small packages--and that's the case with Virginia bluebells. The plant is relatively small, usually staying around two feet high and wide. But despite the shorter size, the color impact is enormous in bloom.

The smooth green stem is firm and grows straight upward. The leaves are a silvery shade of green, oval and smooth in shape, and have pronounced veins. Leaves can reach eight inches, providing fantastic foliage until it goes back into dormancy in the later half of summer.

The bell-shaped flowers are profuse and showy. They stay under an inch long. Each bloom has five light blue petals that drape down from the stem, appearing to nod with the breeze.

Virginia bluebells bloom from mid-spring to early summer.
