Bells of Ireland is a must-have for lovers of green flowers. To be honest, the long-lasting green “bells” are actually calyces, with a tiny, white, true bloom in the center of each calyx, but that’s kind of nit-picky: the plump, densely packed spikes look like fascinating flowers in the garden. The plants typically reach 2 to 3 feet tall and bloom through most of the summer. The spikes work well for cutting, but watch out for the small, sharp thorns. Bells of Ireland doesn’t like sultry summers and generally performs best in cooler climates. Full sun to light shade. Annual.
Harvested in July and August 2020. At least 15 seeds.
