Description

Unique plant choice with dark blue bottle shaped flowers in the fall that stay closed. Bumblebees are one of the only insects that can pollinate the flower by forcing their way inside.

A slow-growing but low maintenance flower that prefers cool, acidic, well drained soils in part shade. Great addition to the border of a woodland or shade garden. Preference for moist soil makes this plant also suitable along a stream or pond.

Ontario Hardiness Zone: 3 to 7 (Find out your Hardiness Zone here)
