Annual. Bells of Ireland is grown for its green, bell-shaped calyxes. This old-fashioned garden annual is useful as a fresh or dried flower. White flowers are fragrant, but inconspicuous. Plants grow best in full sun but tolerate some shade and poor soils if very well-drained. Does not grow well in hot, humid climates. Reseeds readily.

Each packet contains 1 gram, which is about 100 seeds.
