Symphyandra zangezura (P-1227)
With a name that sounds like a fairy tale character, this rare Campanula cousin has charm to spare. Broadly flared bells painted in the prettiest shade of lilac dangle on delicate branching, dark leafy stems. Prominent anthers, dainty recurving petals and narrow ribbed buds enhance the profuse summer-long display, while a winsome bed of green, coarsely toothed, soft hairy leaves lolls below.
Flourishing in fertile well draining soil, but pouting during hot humid weather, the Rock Bellflower can be tucked into the rockery, a trough, or along a pathway where its endearing looks will surely bring a smile to your face.
Blooms June – August.
Size: 10" high x 15" wide.
