Clasping Venus’ looking-glass (Triodanis perfoliata), also known as clasping bellflower, is a dainty little annual that’s native to much of North America. I have read that its upright stems can reach to about 2 feet tall, but in my garden, it rarely exceeds about 6 inches. Starry purple flowers bloom primarily in late spring to early or midsummer, with bright green leaves that clasp the stem at their base. Clasping Venus’ looking-glass may be a little tricky to get started, but once you get it to bloom, it can self-sow freely—just so you know! Full sun to partial shade. Annual.
Collected in early to mid July 2023. At least 40 seeds. PA ecotype. Shipping to US addresses only.
