|Virginia Bluebells, a native of eastern United States, resemble giant Forget-me-nots and favors cooler places, kept moist by semi-shade. Leaves are smooth, grey-green or blue-green and the blue, bell-shaped flowers that appear in clusters give the plant its name. After flowering, the plant goes dormant leaving nothing but a tuberous root. Be careful not to damage the root when hoeing or shoveling near it. At its best when naturalized with ferns, daffodils and woodland wildflowers such as trillium.
