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.
Hailing from Croatia’s Dalmatian Mountains, this natty
AGMwinner sets loose a lovely flood of 5-petaled bellstyle
violet-blue flowers perched on wiry short branching
stems. Small rounded dark green leaves form a closeknit,
nearly evergreen mat beneath the long blooming
summer display. With charm to spare, Campanula portenschlagiana’s
low growing habit tackles heat if there’s adequate
moisture, tumbles down slopes or containers and
softens any rock’s hard edges.
Blooms June – September.
Size: 7"–12" high x 12"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
Campanula portenschlagiana (P-1864)
