Description: Produces lovely pink buds that open to sapphire blue bell flowers in March to May. Excellent in woodland setting and waterside plantings. Pollinated by long-tongued bees, but supports many other early pollinators. This species is a spring ephemeral, which means that its foliage dies back in summer. At the time of the ACT plant sale, the foliage will be past its prime, but the plants will grow back early next spring.
