Hi Everyone!
How are Virginia Bluebells grown? Do the bulbs look like tulip bulbs? And......... does anyone have any to spare? Please let me know if you do.

Virginia bluebells - Mertensia virginica do not have a bulb as far as I know, just regular roots.

They go dormant after setting seed and unless someone knows exactly where to dig they would be difficult to find. they have a tapering carroot-like root.
