Description

A gorgeous native Bluebell with true-blue nodding flowers! Flowers start as pink/violet buds, and then change to deep rich blue flowers as they grow. Blooming begins in very early spring, and last for several weeks. Plants readily naturalize, but do not become invasive. They are ideally situated in a partially d location, though we have some in full sun, and they are quite happy. These are a favorite food for butterflies, and there are few other plants blooming this early in the spring.

Type: Hardy perennial

Hardiness zones: 3-8

Height: 1.5 to 2'

Location: Shade or part sun

Seeds per pack: 20

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. Germination is generally within 60 days after the warming period, though they could take a few months. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and early May, is in a cold frame or cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
