Product Description

Merry bells | Bell Wort


Merry bells, scientifically known as Uvularia grandiflora, are small yellow flowers native to central and eastern North America. Their native range includes the Dakotas, Kansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Georgia, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, and isolated populations along Maryland's Chesapeake Bay. They are listed as endangered in Connecticut and New Hampshire. Planting this flower in its native area has no adverse effect on the local ecosystem. They are also very attractive to a variety of bee species, which can give any garden an advantage when trying to attract pollinators to other local plants in your area.

 This flower grows typically around 30 inches (75 centimeters) in height and 1 foot (30 centimeters) in width. Their dainty flowers have yellow petals that hang from the stem. The weight of the flower pulls the flower down, giving it a very delicate and fragile appearance. The tall green stems and hanging leaves from these plants make for great foliage and ground coverage when planning a flower garden. These plants grow best in wooded areas with fertile soil. They can tolerate calcareous to neutral ground, and open shade. They bloom in mid to late spring and are hardy in zones 4-9.

 Merrybells are perennial plants, meaning that they can live longer than two years.

This makes these plants much more affordable since they do not always need to be replaced every year. This perennial flower will return every year without having to replant. This plant ships bare root year round. With their petite yellow blooms 2" dangling, the blossoms look celestial planted nearby Virginia Bluebells. Otherwise called bellwort, this native wildflower develops all through eastern North America in wet, deciduous woods. Plant these beauties in partial to full shade. The Latin name, Uvularia, originates from contrasting the blossom shape with the uvula in the back of the human throat.

Merry bells have a unique yellow flower that hangs upside down.


The Merry Bells are shipped bare root.

    The Merry Bells were actually nice roots and I think they will grow fine unlike all the other plants I received from this nursery. I have spent over $50 not counting shipping from this nursery and have received very poor quality plants. They do not guarantee their plants so buyer beware!
