Virginia Bluebells 5 For $14.99 Description

Virginia Bluebell - Mertensia Virginica - a Shade Thriving Perennial Plant With Delicate Lavender Blooms in Spring 

Virginia Bluebells or Mertensia Virginica are native plants of North America. These are perennial plants, and it is best to plant them in late winter or Fall. This way, they become entirely ready to bloom in early spring. These flowering plants belong to the Boraginaceae family and are relatives of similar species such as Longwrot, Comfrey, Forget-me-not, etc. 

 

These plants have trumpet-shaped flowers, which also have a resemblance to a bell. The flowers are of blue colors, from light blue to a slightly darker shade. That is where the name comes from as well. The leaves most attached to the flowers also form a bluish color. These leaves are egg-shaped or elliptical.

 

The tips of these leaves are mostly rounded and hairless. The upper leaves are stalkless, so they have more of a floppy and soft appearance. On the other hand, the lower leaves are slightly larger and grow up to 3-6 inches. These leaves have a pinnate vein pattern that adds beauty to the plant's overall appearance. 

Virginia Bluebells grow best in rich and well-drained soils

At the end of the stems, inflorescence begins in a small, gathered, and branched cluster called a cyme. This cyme or cluster extends during the flowering of the plant. The trumpet or bell-shaped flowers are primarily blue but can hint slightly pink. That is because they start with pink during their immature age, and as they grow, they form their most famous blue color. These flowers are five-parted and grow up to an inch long. 

 

These plants grow best in rich and well-drained soils. They can form large colonies over time in such soil. These cultivated flowering plants grow fast, and their flowers shoot quickly. 

 

Female bumblebees fly over these flowers during spring, creating a stunning view.

Once they bloom, they can last up to many weeks. When they are in their full bloom, transplanting them is not recommended. These spring ephemerals are pretty low maintenance. They do not require regular pruning or cutbacks. They grow and bloom into perfect-looking flowers all on their own once planted. 

 

They are a fantastic addition to any home garden. Homeowners often plant these with daffodils; the contrast of the vibrant colors of both plants looks lovely. It requires no extra hustle and care.

 

It is best to leave it undisturbed once planted, and early in the spring, the garden will take up a new and refreshed look with the newly bloomed flowers. It is a shade-loving plant but can tolerate some sunlight; They are extraordinarily easygoing and can colonize on their own. You need to plant the rhizome and keep the soil moist and rich.

    I bought some Virginia bluebells from another online retailer- and these were much better by comparison- bigger, healthier looking -
    I wish bluebells weren’t so expensive - but im looking forward to these developing!
