Upon receipt of your plants, unpack and unwrap the roots and mist with water. Plant within 24-48 hours. If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.

Bluet flowers are also known as Quaker ladies and azure bluets.
The plants are members of the Rubiaceae family, and they are creeping perennials that yield small wildflowers. Bluets spread and form mounds that include dainty leaves and blooms that are pale in color. These flowers are native to the eastern region of the U.S. and grow from Maine all the way to Florida. You can also find them in states like Oklahoma, Lousiana, and Texas.
The flowers on bluets bloom singly on stalks that are around two and a half inches. You'll see the plant flower near the end of spring. The flowers are baby blue and have yellow centers, and continue to bloom throughout the summer and autumn. Bluets are fairly easy to maintain, making them a great choice for the novice gardener.
Bluet flowers self-seed very well. Once you see a full stand of the blooms, you'll likely see more flowers growing to form a ground cover as the year progresses
The plant thrives in wooded areas that are partially or lightly shaded.
Birds and wind disperse bluet seeds, so it's possible to find these pretty flowers blooming in other parts of your landscape as well. Bluets do well in hardiness zones 3-9 and need to be watered often. It's best to plant them near the largest trees in the yard or near moss so the bluets can flourish. Bluets do very well near other perennial shrubs and flowers since they add a hue and texture contrast that will make you want to spend more time in your yard or garden. These plants prefer organic, slightly acidic, moist soil. It's best to plant these flowers in the bare areas of your residential or commercial landscape to add color and visual appeal. Keep the flowers out of the warm sun of the afternoon to prevent wilting.
