Campanula glomerata ‘Caroline’
at Digging Dog

Clustered Bellflower

Campanula glomerata Caroline

Campanula

Bellflower

The definitive bellflower, Campanulas melt your heart as they ring in the summer. The genus includes nearly 300 species, from dainty miniatures to stalwart uprights; we can’t resist using them in almost every garden design. Campanulas prefer filtered sun inland, full sun on the coast.

Campanula glomerata ‘Caroline’ full sun  partial shade

Featured in lovely rounded heads, showy pastel-hued flowers surmount stocky upright stems loosely attired with small sessile leaves. Each long lasting cluster houses up to 15 small blooms, described by deep mauve tips, aged pale blushed petals and newer more saturated amethyst pink ones for a distinctive two-toned effect. Large long-petioled foliage–hairy, toothed, and ovate-shaped– form a verdant slowly spreading basal clump that relishes even moisture and exhibits more heat tolerance than most glomerata species. Rarely offered and easily cultivated, ‘Caroline’ can be associated with pink blooming Persicaria ‘Dimity’.

Blooms June–August.

Size: 12"–18" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 3.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
