A wonderful spring ephemeral native to regions in eastern North America. The 15-18" tall plants are best known for their pink buds that open to reveal soft blue, tubular blossoms in early spring. Flowers are set off by large, oval, blue-green leaves. By early summer, plants set seed and go dormant, lying in rest until the following year. Excellent in the garden when cultivated in rich, evenly moist soils with part shade. Looks especially brilliant if mass planted in drifts in the woodland. Few garden scenes can rival the beauty provided by a bluebell understory.
