LGS Notes: Virginia bluebells work great in rain gardens and as a spring perennial for an all-seasons garden. It is an early spring bloomer and will thrive in shady settings. It is deer resistant, like deer actually don’t eat this one (fingers crossed). I’ve seen it spread as a ground cover in a shady woodland area under trees pretty easily. You’ll want to interplant with other summery plants for evergreen ferns because once it gets warm the plant gets ‘whiny’ and its leaves die back. This doesn’t mean it won’t re emerge and bloom the following year, it just enjoys the cool spring weather.
