California Bluebell Seeds
Info: California Bluebell is a delightful summer flower and will produce gorgeous, blue flowers atop low growing, attractive green foliage. The stems of these graceful flowering plants are burgundy red, growing to a mature height of roughly 20 - 50 cm tall. They are known to thrive in dry, arid conditions, where most plant life is scarce, however they are also adaptive as well.
Sowing & care: Sow seeds directly outdoors or in the garden when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed. The soil should be of all unwanted weeds and other plant life. Sprinkle the seeds directly to the surface of the soil, covering them very lightly with 1-2 mmh of topsoil. Water daily with a light mist setting so that the soil is kept moist, but never soaked. Plants will require an area of full sunlight for the majority of the day and a well-drained soil.
