Campanula punctata "Pink Octopus"
The blooms of this Campanula look like someone took the scissors to them: the blooms are slit, giving a spidery look, or as the name suggests: an octopus look. The leaves are also heavily toothed on the edges. This Campanula is not only a curiosity: it's a lovely spreading, low maintenance ground cover that blooms off and on all summer and into fall. It is not only ideal for spilling over rock walls, but I have seen it used to great advantage as a container plant. Full sun, partial shade in Zones 4-9. Quarts.
