The name Bluebell refers to a whole class of perennial or annual plants, deciduous or evergreen, in various sizes and shades. Every bluebell is different, but they all love cold climates with cool summers. In our country they thrive in partial shade, decorating the garden with their beautiful bell-shaped flowers. Ideal for almost any occasion, they make colorful flower arrangements, in flower beds, borders and pots or as a stunning purple-blue carpet.
It needs a lot of watering and its water needs increase especially during the hot summer months when the temperature rises. It grows in soils with medium texture and good drainage, so that water does not remain around the roots or shoots of the plant. It is a plant that is quite resistant to the cold, but it cannot withstand a lot of heat. It needs little care and usually has no problems with insects or diseases. It is suitable for flower beds, borders, balconies, pots, planters and hanging baskets, as a ground cover, a single variety in groups or together with other flowering plants, in garden edges, rock gardens and cool shady spots. Great to create a natural effect in areas with cool summers and give amazing floral combinations.
The size of each bell varies, depending on the type or variety we will choose. There are low, medium and tall plants up to 1.8 meters in size. Its foliage can be evergreen, semi-evergreen or fall with the winter cold. The leaves, with their soft delicate texture, alternate between shades of light green-bronze to dark green. A characteristic and most impressive part of the whole plant are the flowers, in the shape of a bell or a small star and colored from blue, pink, purple and white. Depending on the variety and the climate of each region, they make their appearance from spring to summer. In the cold climates where it comes from, it likes sunny places, but in our country it prefers partial shade to protect itself from heat and drought.
