Believe it or not, Bells of Ireland doesn't actually originate from Ireland. The plants are actually native too much of the eastern Mediterranean. Bells of Ireland grows much like a foxglove plant, displaying it's beautiful, green, flower like tubes along its tall stems. Each stem can hold anywhere between 20 to 50 or more blooms. The plants themselves will reach a height of roughly 30 inches tall and can spread 10 to 12 inches wide.


Grown as an annual flowering plant, Bells of Ireland will grow quickly from fresh flower seeds. The plants will bloom profusely through the summer months, and will later die with the first killing frost. The seeds can drop to the bare ground beneath, to establish new plant life the following season. You can also wait until the end of the Autumn season to collect and save seeds from your Bells of Ireland plants.


Moluccella laevis is well known for being used as a cut flower. They look great in all sorts of floral arrangements, as well as floral bouquets. Plant them in the garden, as a border plant, or in flower beds.

GROWING CONDITIONS

Bells of Ireland will enjoy an area of full sunlight with temperatures of at least 70F or more. The soil should be neutral to fertile and also well drained. To increase drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to areas containing hard, compact soil. Water daily so that the seeds and soil is moist until germination has occurred.
