Tennessee Plants - Viginia Bluebells
Not sure if these are truly native, but I have seen them growing along streams in TN all my life. So as far as I'm concerned, in spite of their name, they are native. *grin*
Latin name: Mertensia virginica
A spring ephemeral, the bluebell does its thing in late March to early April and by about June are completely gone. Just one of the very interesting plants you'll find growing in the woods in our great state.
