What is a Velvetbells? Bartsia alpina, more commonly known as the Velvetbells, is a perennial flowering plant that can be found in many mountainous areas of Europe; as well as Canada, Greenland and Iceland.

This beautiful flower has characteristic violet bells that hang from its stem, and it blooms during the late summer and fall.

The Velvetbells thrives in cool, moist habitats such as meadows, forest edges, and along stream banks, and can be seen at its best when the weather is mild and damp.

If you're looking to see this lovely flower in the wild, look for it in the early fall months near streams or other moist habitats. Enjoy the beauty of the Velvetbells!
