Virginia Bluebells

One of the best-loved woodland charmers, the pink buds turn their distinctive lavender-blue as they mature. In early spring, bell-shaped blooms appear on 15-24" stems. Plant alongside Ferns, Astilbe or Dicentra, who will fill in when the bluebells die back in summer. Zones 3-8. Bareroot. Mertensia pulmonarioides. Partial to Full Shade. Deer tend to avoid.
