Mertensia virginica


Shoots rise in early spring as the ground thaws. Flowers start as clusters of pink buds, then open up to bright blue bells. After blooming for several weeks, seeds ripen, and the plant begins to fade, going dormant in early July. Native to eastern woodlands.

We are offering blooming-sized, plants grown in 1/2 gallon pots.

Zones 3-8. 12 in. Part shade, moist humus soil.

Spring ordering is now closed.
