Bells of Ireland - Moluccella laevis
Grown for its green, bell-shaped calyxes, this old-fashioned garden annual is useful as a fresh or dried flower. Flowers are fragrant, but inconspicuous and white. 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 and is grown as a winter annual in the desert. Reseeds readily.
