Grow this stunning plant, known as "Bells of Ireland," from freshly harvested Moluccella laevis seeds. Believe it or not, Bells of Ireland doesn't actually originate from Ireland. The plants are actually native to much of the eastern Mediterranean. Bells of Ireland grows much like a foxglove plant, displaying it's beautiful, green, flower like tubes along it's tall stems. Each stem can hold anywhere between 20 to 50 or more blooms. The plants themselves will reach a height of roughly 30 inches tall and can spread 10 to 12 inches wide.

The plants will bloom profusely through the summer months, and will later die with the first killing frost. The seeds can drop to the bare ground beneath, to establish new plant life the following season. You can also wait until the end of the Autumn season to collect and save seeds from your Bells of Ireland plants.
