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.

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.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

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