Molucella

Molucella is nicknamed ‘bells of Ireland’ but the funny fact is that she had nothing to do with Ireland. Originally she’s found in Turkey, Syria and the Caucasus.

Most florists do have Mollucella in spring time. 

It is a lovely fresh green elegant flower.

Molucella is beautiful in a combination with white flowers.

You can enjoy this nice flower pretty long:for 2 weeks in the vase or even longer when planted in the garden!
The mollucella blooms from July until frost.
Bees love the ‘bells of Ireland’!
