Uvularia grandiflora

Large-flowered Bellwort

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.535.500

Also known as Merry Bells. Native to the woodlands of Eastern North America, this is an easy-to-grow spring blooming perennial. It forms an upright clump of light-green pleated leaves, with delicate yellow nodding bell-shaped flowers made up of six petals that twist in a charming way. A wonderful companion to ferns, Hostas and other woodland plants. Clumps may be carefully divided in the autumn if desired. Slugs are sometimes a problem, consider a mulch of pine needles to help prevent this.
