Campanula sarmatica

Campanula

Bellflower

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.

Gracing American gardens since the 1800s, this rarely offered, endangered Campanula fashions an attractive gray-green rosette of crinkled, arrow-shaped leaves, each with a rounded base, a somewhat fuzzy surface and long petioles. The dainty floriferous display of soft blue, flared bells borne on one-sided, upright racemes belies its rugged character.

A sun tolerant, clumping perennial, Campanula sarmatica’s quiet charm can be admired along a border’s edge or atop a wall accompanying Diascia ‘Coral Canyon’.

Blooms July–August.

Size: 16"–20" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

Our favorite plant this week - We love Echinops 'Blue Glow' for its uniquely shaped flowers in the border or a cut arrangement. Intensely blue, the surreal-looking globes of this Echinops perch on stalks lined with elegant, jagged-edged gray-green foliage. Backlit by the late afternoon sun and planted en masse, ‘Blue Glow’s flowers seem to float amidst spiky Muhlenbergia rigens and the dark domes of Angelica gigas. Echinops 'Blue Glow'

Customer Comment:

“Surfing the web for a special plant, I chanced on Digging Dog Nursery. I thought that any nursery that could create an Egyptian Gothic out of Anubis must have some pretty cool things going for it. I was right, and my first order was a pleasure. Well packed, healthy plants and extremely appealing people on the other side of the screen.”
