Moluccella laevis - Certified Organic

Gorgeous, apple-green spikes with a delicate fragrance.

Bells Heard Round the World. Both the common and the scientific name of this plant suggest places of origin: Ireland or the Moluccas Islands. But this green-flowering beauty actually has its origins in the Caucasus Mountains. The jade color and sweet fragrance of its pollinator-attracting blooms propelled the plant to global fame; it is widely appreciated in fresh and dried arrangements. The familiar common name comes from the bell shape of the calyx around the blooms and the association of green with the Emerald Isle.

Invite the pixies to come play in your garden with these compact, apple-green bells. Pixie adds interesting texture and contrast to flower borders and makes an excellent cut flower. Inside each bell-shaped calyx, you will find a small, white flower with a mild fragrance. Grows wild in Syria and Turkey, but the vibrant green has come to be associated with Ireland and good luck. Likes a well-prepped bed and evenly moist soil to germinate (be patient!). Most Bells need staking, but this dwarf variety tends to stand tall on its own. -Hudson Valley Seed Co
