4.50
Common Name: Bellflower

UK Native? No - garden origin

One of the largest bellflowers. Semi-evergreen with spreading basal rosettes of leaves. The waxy dark purple buds are large to 5cm/2in longand open to huge purple blue flowers. A recent cultivar and probably a cross between native Campanula latifolia and one of the long-belled Asiatic bellflowers such as C. takesimana or C. punctata. A sterile hybrid, it flowers all summer long. Excels in the mixed or cottage garden border in a moist but well drained soil.

Care and maintenance:
Cut the flowering stems to ground level when they are finished and more will be provided within weeks. Tidy old foliage in spring.

Customer Comments!

Would just like to say a huge thankyou for the order of 6 hardy geraniums which have been successfully delivered and planted! I cant believe how speedily and efficiently you dealt with this. I ordered them on Saturday 11th May, you replied to say they would be despatched on Monday 13th and delivered on Tuesday 14th-which they were. The plants were very carefully and securely packed, and I have to say the quality of them all is first class. I planted them yesterday, and I hope they enjoy the climate here in Buckinghamshire-perhaps slightly more benign than Wales!! Once again thankyou for everything-first class service, first class plants. LJ Bucks (May 2013)
