Bells of Ireland

Bells of Ireland are bold, vibrantly green symbols of good luck.

Bells of Ireland can range in color, from pale green to emerald green. They’re known for their bell-shaped calyxes on a long, tall stem. The cup-shaped leaves, or calyxes, surround tiny white flowers with a sour apple scent.

This brilliantly green flower is part of the mint family and can be grown outdoors in many regions of the world. Oddly, the Bells of Ireland do not originate from Ireland, but rather from Turkey and eastern Asia.

These flowers have been cultivated since 1570. Their name likely comes from their association with good luck.
