Virginia Blue Bells

Virginia Blue Bells

Often a much-needed early nectar source for bees!

Hardy, native U.S. perennial produces pretty pink buds that form clusters of nodding, bell-shaped, porcelain-blue flowers. Contrasts beautifully with daffodils when grown together. Utterly delightful when planted beneath a stand of trees! When bluebells first emerge in early spring, they have striking deep purple foliage. The leaves then quickly turn green.

Important Shipping Notes:

Breck's times its shipments from Holland so that bulbs and bareroots arrive at the proper planting time (depending on climatic conditions) for each area of North America. To promote optimum stress protection in transit and your success in the garden, bareroot perennials are kept in the ground in our nurseries until fully dormant. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window below.

We will pack and ship your order based on the following schedules. The type of product you order or the weather may affect the anticipated shipping schedule below. Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible in the planting season to allow for the best root development once planted.
