What is a Virginia Bluebell?
Virginia bluebells are native North American plants. They differ from the European variety and are actually related to forget-me-nots. Bluebells grow naturally here in the floodplain at Riverbend. They like the slightly damp soil, so they’ve been here many decades. They root vegetatively, so they form a large colony. Their other name is the oyster leaf because their leaves taste a little bit like oysters and you can eat them in salads.
