Bells of Ireland, Pixie

Moluccella laevis

Perfect green bells for a bouquet. 

Invite the pixies to come play in your garden with these compact, apple-green bells. Pixie adds interesting texture and contrast to flower borders and makes an excellent cut flower. Inside each bell-shaped calyx, you will find a small, white flower with a mild fragrance. Grows wild in Syria and Turkey, but the vibrant green has come to be associated with Ireland and good luck. Likes a well-prepped bed and evenly moist soil to germinate (be patient!). Most Bells need staking, but this dwarf variety tends to stand tall on its own.
