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!

This was my first order with you. I have never understood why when I order with one firm, I have to wait up to 28 days to find out if they have received the order, whereas with Penlan Perennials, the goods arrive next day. Not hard to guess which type I prefer to deal with. I placed my order and asked a question in the comments box. You acknowledged immediately, gave me a packing and receipt date AND answered the question. WOW! You have a real person sorting out the orders and they can read and think. Not as common as you might imagine. Then you contacted me to confirm that the plants had been dispatched. They arrived on the day specified in good, healthy condition and well packed. No damage even though the box was delivered upside down. BC, Liverpool 2005
