We have been amazed at the performance of this evergreen Chinese species of fairy bells. The 3' tall, bamboo-like shoots arise in early spring, often with a purple tint as they emerge. They quickly unfurl into a multi-branched clump, topped in late spring with dazzling, dark purple, bell-like flowers. This is truly a most unique plant that will find a home in any woodland garden. We feel that this will have a much-extended hardiness range even past our conservative estimates.
