Over a low mound of delicate, medium-green ferny leaves, open clusters of lightly fragrant violet-blue bells that rise taller in mid to late spring, new fresh leaves continuing to appear all season. This variety looks good from spring right through until late autumn and is ideal for edging a shady border or growing beside a woodland path. It is a Missouri native wild flower that grows in rich, moist woods, and alongside streams throughout the State, except for the far north eastern counties.

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
