Bells of Ireland

Contrary to the name, "bells of Ireland" are not actually from Ireland. The reason they got this name is because of their luscious green color leaves. They are a member of the mint family and are from Western Asia. Bells of Ireland are also known as "shell flowers" and can grow up to 2-3 feet tall. Like baby's breath they make a great dried flower. In arrangements they make wonderful decorative flowers. These flowers are a symbol of good luck and are often used around St. Patrick's Day.
