Campanula lactiflora Prichard’s Variety

<i>Campanula lactiflora</i> ‘Prichard’s Variety’



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.

Saponaria ‘Max Frei’ is a lively companion for this Campanula’s flowers and Achillea ‘Fireland’ adds warm red tones.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week: We love Tricyrtis 'Empress' for its unique, late blooming flowers. Renowned for its extra large and wider open flowers, this exquisite, newly introduced Toad Lily is a formosana hybrid. Ornate, spidery spaced petals are inscribed by occasional darkened tips and irregular velvet-rich deep purple spots, stipples and mottling on a creamy white background. An enticing fall beacon amongst the shadows, ‘Empress’s showy terminal blooms are supported by an upright robust gathering of lustrous, semi-clasping dark green foliage that stays dapper all season.
