NEW FOR 2020!
I see hillsides and meadows and road-cuts and Aspen groves and banks covered in these delicate beauties. It wouldn't be summer without Harebells.
4-15" clusters colonize areas or pop up alone here and there. (Propagates by seeds and rhizomes) It can grow in full sun to full shade but I often see it in half-shade. Purple-blue bells hang off of slender stems and foliage. Foliage is edible. Hummingbirds love it.
Great for rock gardens, grows in sandy soils. Needs light to germinate, sow on the surface. Bottom watering is preferred. Starting seeds indoors is recommended but I'd do both, start some an sow some outdoors. They can germinate quickly but will not flower until their second year.
