Mertensia virginica, Virginia Bluebells
Sold in a strip of 4 deep plugs for $38.00
These deep plugs are typically the preferred size for plants that are shallow-rooted. The additional width of these plugs allows for horizontal growth of the roots, which benefits many species of ferns and sedges.
Each individual plug measures 2 ¼” x 2 ¼” across by 4” deep.
These plugs are landscape-ready, but also offer a head start should you be interested in potting them up.
A spring ephemeral, this early-blooming perennial has clusters of pink buds opening to light blue, trumpet-shaped flowers on upright plants in March or April. This Southwestern PA native, deer-resistant plant is spectacular in mass plantings, but the foliage dies back by mid-summer. It grows best in light shade and moist soil.
