A member of the Lily family, 1-2” long bells are suspended from tall arching stems. The sheer petals in soft yellow gently flare and hang gracefully downward from slender stems like a ballet dancer’s skirt. A US native, it is most at home in dappled sunlight in spring and light shade in summer.

Uvularia will brighten a deep shady area. The leaves appear as though a skilled seamstress pulled a thread through each leaf to form overlapping leaves up the stems. Once established, this woodlander is primarily maintenance free. We like the common names too – Merry Bells, Fairybells.

Uvularia General Information

Uvularia spreads slowly by rhizomes to create massed plantings. Long-lasting flowers - usually 1-4 per stem are followed by attractive seed capsules.

Uvularia Plant Care

Maintenance-free once established. Water well during first season to establish or if summer brings drought conditions. Prefers humus-rich soil - add organic matter to retain moisture. Feed with a slow-release fertilizer after flowering.
