high, terminating in tight, clustered violet bells that are ideal for cutting. Be sure to cut this "superb" bellflower back after its initial bloom to encourage a second wave of violet bells. Campanula glomerata "Superba" prefers moisture-retentive soil and sun and will be floppy if it doesn't get enough of it. Zones 3-8. Quarts.
I have never been disappointed with any Campanula I have ever grown. They are
all beautiful and, in my mind, the stars of the garden. Campanula latifolia "Brantwood," was new to my garden in 2011, and when it bloomed for the first time, I was more than pleasantly surprised. I was prepared for beauty, but not for this much of it all at one time. Campanula latifolia "Brantwood" has 3-4 foot spires with large, intense blue/violet bells, making it especially useful for the back of the border, as well as cottage gardens. This one's definitely a keeper. Full sun/part shade and well-drained soil. Zones 3-9. Quarts.
This stunning, rare white bellflower from the Caucasus Mountains has heart-shaped leaves, arching stems, and white bell flowers that are
sometimes edged in pink. You couldn't ask for anything nicer. It grows from 12 to 18 inches tall in sun/partial shade. Zones 5-9. Quarts.
Here is another beautiful spreading Campanula - this one with the same endearing, heart-shaped leaves and large dark pink bellflowers. The foliage stays low to the ground, and the flower stalks are from 12 to 18 inches high, making it just right for sprawling over rock walls or peeping through fences. Full sun/partial shade, Zones 4-9. Quarts.
