Mertensia virginica Virginia Bluebell – 3 Fresh Dug Roots for Fall Planting Preorder
Missouri Botanical Gardens Plant of Merit!
A cherished Missouri native perennial, Virginia Bluebells, Mertensia virgninica, delights us in spring with nodding clusters of pink buds that open to sky blue flowers. Virgnia Bluebells go dormant after blooming. Plant Virginia Bluebells between Hostas and other large leaved shade plants. Easy to grow in shade to part shade. Naturalizes quickly.
Plant bulbs in soil that has been amended with organic matter like Cotton Burr Compost. Plant bulbs 4-6″ deep and 4-6″ apart, about 3-4 a square foot. Plant in full sun to light shade. Part shade will keep the flowers looking better longer. Keep soil moist to encourage root formation.
Fertilizer:To get your bare root perennials off to a healthy start we recommend at planting applying an application of Espmoa Organic Bio Tone Starter Plus. The spring after they are planted, after flowering fertilize with Espoma Organic Plant-Tone. This will give them the energy they need to recuperate from blooming and keep a healthy root system.
Fresh dug roots will be available for pickup beginning early September. As soon as we receive your plants we will contact you to schedule a pickup date and time for your preorder.
