The definitive bellflower, Campanulas melt your heart as they ring in the summer. The genus includes nearly 300 species, from dainty miniatures to stalwart uprights; we can’t resist using them in almost every garden design. Campanulas prefer filtered sun inland, full sun on the coast.
Blowsy branching heads of soft pink bellflowers crown sturdy stems lined in pointed leaves, and with Boltonia ‘Snowbank’ nearby create a perfect duet for harmony and support. We love this plant just as much in winter when we pull back the mulch to see its crisp, fleshy white buds slumbering away the cold months.
Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
