Mertensia virginica - Virginia Bluebells

Mertensia virginica


Common Name: Virginia Bluebells


Virginia Bluebells are a must-have for the simple joy they provide each spring. Buds appear in pink, then open to blue and last for weeks. Early nectar is especially important to native bees and butterflies. Foliage dies back in summer as the plant goes dormant until the next year so plant it with later emerging perennials like Lobelia for continuous color.


This plant comes nestled in a 4" square Deep CowPot with a free metal plant ID marker. Learn more about why we think CowPots are so awesome here.
