Virginia Bluebells are best enjoyed up close. The flowers are tiny, while the foliage is vast in comparison. Until a friend tried to get them established in her back yard several years ago, I was completely oblivious to this delicate native beauty. I watched my friend’s efforts with interest.
Fast forward to now, and here I am enjoying my own several plants, newly-established.
The pink buds blend into the blue of the delicate bells as tie-dyed cloth. A captivating cascade, facing downward from several sturdy stems, contrasts against the bright Spring green of the saucer-like leaves. I hope tomorrow’s rain does not disturb them.
