The Q&A Archives: Bells of Ireland

Question: I recently purchased some cut flowers the florist called Bells of Ireland. I can't find this plant listed in any garden book. Is there another name for this plant? Will it grow in northern NJ?

Answer: Bells of Ireland is an old fashioned favorite annual for cutting and drying. It should do well in your area. Look for Moluccella laevis. Burpee (800-888-1447) carries the seed.
