Pearly white colored Bay Nettles are found up and down the American Atlantic coast in summer months. But in certain areas highly variable color morphs can be found. Every summer our team goes out to hand collect the most beautiful and Rainbow Bay nettles. These jellies are all incredibly unique, having a wide variety of colors and patterns. Colors include Burgundy, red & purple.
