Bells of Ireland
Perfect green bells for a bouquet.
These apple-green bells add interesting texture and contrast to borders and make an excellent cut flower. Inside each bell-shaped calyx, you will find a small, white flower with a mild fragrance. This plant grows wild in Syria and Turkey, but the vibrant green has come to be associated with Ireland and good luck. Sow in a well-prepped bed and keep soil evenly moist to germinate (be patient!).
