One of the most beautiful native wildflowers, Virginia bluebells flower when the spring weather becomes warm and goes dormant by mid-summer. In early spring, they emerge and grow in compact clumps and are up to 2 feet tall. The product will likely be done blooming by the time of the plant sale pick up but will bloom the following spring. They can be found in nutrient-rich, moist soils of forests and thickets.
