Campanula ‘Purple Sensation’
at Digging Dog

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.

Droves of luscious nearly black buds unfurling pendulous, 3 in. long midnight purple bells above a compact mounded foundation make ‘Purple Sensation’ a coveted perennial. Introduced by Dutch nurseryman Mark van Kesteren, this sensational easy-care Campanula offers additional enticements: a noninvasive habit, well-branched stalks garbed with attractive heat tolerant foliage plus fanciful green calyces. (PP#16,027)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
