Description
Virginica - Our native nodding 'bluebells' that compliment many spring blooming bulbs; prefer to be either in a humus-rich semi-shady area or underneath larger plants; need sufficient moisture when actively growing; goes dormant in the summer; spring blooming native; 8"-16"; whz 3-9.

These natives of Greece and Asia Minor are the best companion perennials for spring flowering bulbs. Their dark green, segmented, leathery, evergreen leaves make a fine backdrop for spring bulb flowers. Their nodding, showy 2"-4" long lasting, bowl-shaped flowers come in a range of colors from dark plum purple through pink, cream, yellow to green, often with an attractive dusting of spots. They grow best in shade to part sun, in rich well-drained soil with adequate moisture and are close to being critter proof.
