POND PLANT BIO:
Bluebell’s numerous, stunningly bright purple flowers draw in all manner of pollinators, including bees, butterflies, and humming birds! Their rhizomatous roots are excellent at soaking up pollutants and excess nutrients, thus improving both soil and water quality. Bluebells do best in either damp soils or in emergent water habitats, including wetlands and the edges of ponds and streams. Sit back and watch their bean-like pods explode in a shower of seed!
