Bluebells, as the Common Harebell is better known, are a native to Alaska and are widely distributed. The plant has basal leaves that are rounded to heart-shaped, usually slightly toothed, and a tendency to wither early. Leaves on the flowering stems are long and thin and the upper ones are unstemmed. Bluebell flowers have five violet-blue, pink, or white petals fused together into a bell shape, about 0.6" long and five long, pointed green sepals behind them. The petal lobes are triangular and curve outwards. They bloom on long thin stems either singly or in loose clusters from late spring to autumn. The flowers are pollinated by bees, but interestingly they can also self-pollinate. Blooming Time: July and August.
