Likely the boldest of our Woodland Shade area plants, the Virginia Bluebell plant grows flowers that range in color from pink, to purple, to dark blue, to light blue. Virginia Bluebell flowers are amongst the first to bloom in the Spring and go completely dormant in the Summer. Once they are able to self-seed, your Virginia Bluebell will act as a type of groundcover, as they spread fairly rapidly forming fields of beautiful blue flowers.

Virginia Bluebells attract the earliest pollinators and are essential components of woodland ecosystems because of the early source of nectar that they provide.

We recommend these plants for shaded or Woodland Shade (dappled sunlight) areas, however, these plants can tolerate partial sun if soil is not allowed to dry. Virginia Bluebells are common east of the Rocky Mountains in the US.

You will be purchasing a 3" plastic pot containing 1, well-rooted Virginia Bluebell plant with 1+ nodes of growth that was grown with love in Minnesota from seed. We will try and provide plants with multiple nodes, but it may vary depending on availability.

Plants ship out on Monday through Wednesday of every week and please note that the condition of each plant BEFORE shipping will be sent to you by picture. We also encourage you to make sure that you will be home the day your package is delivered so that you can plant as soon as possible. We recommend planting the early morning or evening you receive your plant to ensure exposure to the elements is minimal. Also to note, we highly encourage that your planting area should match the desired conditions we note above. If not, we can not guarantee survival of your plant.

Shipments to California, Florida and Arizona go through extra scrutiny by each state’s USDA affiliate and Dept of Agriculture, please keep this in-mind before buying.

NOTE: Your plants are shipped at a young age and will likely not have any developed flowers. It is normal to not have fully-developed flowers during the first full season of plant growth.

Refunds and exchanges are only given if the plant sustains damage beyond wilting/transplant shock or severe breakage of stems. We are not responsible for the condition of the plant after you receive it, as we do everything possible to prepare your plant for safe shipment. Please message me immediately upon receiving your plant and take a photo of the entire plant in and out of packaging. Refunds are only given if we receive an image proving significant broken stem damage, substantial loss of leaves (i.e. no more than 4 leaves remaining) or proving that the plant has been thrown out of its container.
