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.
