 The Virginia Bluebell, also called Mertensia Virginica, is a garden princess that recently gained ranks among garden species. It is from the Mertensia genus. Other popular types of Mertensia include Mertensia Maritima, Mertensia Sibirica etc. 

The Virginia Bluebell is characterized by terete, light green, and hairless stem. In addition, the Virginia Bluebell is attributed with light green leaves that grow up to 3.5" wide and 7" long and some beautiful flowers usually in shades of blue, which grow up to 0.75" to 1.25" in length. 

These gorgeous perennial plants thrive under low shady woodlands and have been used as colors to gardens and landscapes in recent times. These beautiful plants are native to North America and some parts of Asia. However, Mertensia is mainly found in alpine, montane, and subalpine regions. Notably, the Virginia Bluebell is endemic to rocky areas. 

Unfortunately, the Virginia Bluebell has been endangered recently, with many scientists are raising alarms due to the fear of this beautiful species being likely to go extinct. The danger they faced has been credited to their habitat loss. Therefore, the need for breeders to incorporate these unusual plants into their gardens is high, as this can be the best way to ensure that this great plant has existed for many years. 

The Virginia Bluebell is usually attributed to beautiful deep purple leaves in early springs. However, the leaves suddenly turn green as they mature. The Virginia Bluebell is renowned for producing flowers that blossom in mid-spring and maintain their beauty up to mid-summer before the plant goes dormant. This gorgeous plant is known to grow up to 61cm (12 inches) tall. 

As some people will say, the Virginia Bluebells love to show off their flowers. They show off their beauty by handing down bell-shaped flowers in clusters. This feature makes the plant stand out in the gardens of different species. Thus, the Virginia Bluebell is not only limited to mere physical beautification. They also produce a good fragrance that is pleasing and comforting to people. However, bees and birds find the Virginia Bluebell attractive and always see them in open spaces.  

However, the Virginia Bluebell is widely labeled to be an invasive species. The plant tends to spread and multiply quickly and sometimes in an undesirable manner. Therefore, it is advised that a breeder or gardener be aware of the Virginia Bluebells self-seeds as they can rapidly form colonies or dense clumps. 

Although the Virginia Bluebell is easy to maintain, it is equally important to know where to plant them. Virginia Bluebell excels in shady areas or dappled sun.
