  Uvularia - Merry Bells or Bellworts are one of the treasures of our spring forests. They multiply by long, fleshy, white underground stolons and form colonies of delicate stems holding varying color yellow bells nodding in the breeze. These drooping bell-shaped flowered plants are member of the Lily Family, Liliaceae, and are among the easiest of wildflowers to grow in partially-shaded areas in rich, moist but well-drained soil.  The do prefer Moist but well-drained soil and gratefully accept water during drought but do survive without it!

'Wort' as in Bellworts (and pronounced 'wirt') is an old term that denoted the plant was used for food or medicine.

A note about Exposure for Veronicas:  

In the hotter zones -- 7 and 8, Veronicas will take and appreciate Part Shade.  In cooler areas, they're better in Sun according to Dr. Leonard Perry, Professor, University of Vermont on this Veronica Page.  Our zones on Veronicas are also from this page.

 

  Veronica longifoliaWhen folks think of Veronicas, it's generally of V. spicata or Spiked Veronica but for our money, we think the Veronica longifolia (Long Leaf Speedwell) are definitely contenders for a spot in your garden.  One of the taller species.  It's also the best for cutting due to its very fat spikes.  The tips often nod or curl over a bit but that just makes it more charming! Less well known but they shouldn't be!

THIS IS HANDS DOWN, THE MOST BLOOMING VERONICA IN THE TRADE and it seems to be our secret here in the US.  Maybe we have a special clone but it just never stops blooming -- was still blooming in our unheated greenhouses in November.  And we never have time to deadhead, so it isn't because of that!  If Veronica 'Sunny Border Blue' was named 'Plant of the Year', this should be named Plant of the Decade or Centaury!  It has  all the same tough, great qualities of all the V. spicatas but 'Romiley Purple' is just a blooming machine.   Available all over Europe, it's virtually unavailable here.
