Bluebells, Virginia (Mertensia virginica)


The Preserve is well known for its spectacular bluebell display in April. Mixed with other spring ephemerals, they cover the valley along the creek at the bottom of the Parry Trail. The pink buds give way to clusters of lovely blue flowers offset by soft, green leaves. They depend on queen bumblebees for pollination, and the queen bumblebees depend on them for nectar. Particularly stunning when planted with wood poppies, they grow best in sun to shade in moist soil. They are dormant in summer.
