(8-20" tall) In its native habitat, Desert Bluebells sprout blooms seemingly overnight after a late spring rain quenches their thirst. Soon the plants are covered with flowers in one of the richest, clearest blues you'll find anywhere in nature. True blue is a much sought after flower color in home gardens, but is usually found in fussier species or those that have been highly hybridized. An important spring food source for bees and other pollinators, the plants will continue producing nectar-rich flowers for an extended bloom time. Adaptable to a range of soils types, Desert Bluebell readily self-sows and multiplies, forming a colony of plants that will grace your garden each spring with a carpet of beguiling blue. Other common names include Desert Bells, Desert Canterbury Bells, and California Bluebells.
