Plant Profile: Mertensia virginica-Bluebells

March 27, 2020

 

Virginia Bluebells are perhaps the most widely recognized and beloved spring wildflower in our region.  The profuse clusters of soft blue flowers catch the eye wherever they bloom, and when occurring in drifts are one of spring’s most spectacular floral displays.  Plant in part to full shade where springtime moisture is reliable.  Since the foliage dies back during summer heat, inter-plant with ferns or other hot season shade perennials for continuous cover.
