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.
Featured in showy rounded heads, pastel-hued flowers surmount stocky upright stems loosely attired with small sessile leaves. Each long-lasting cluster houses up to 15 small blooms, described by deep mauve tips, aged pale blushed petals and newer more saturated amethyst-pink ones for a distinctive 2-toned effect. Large long-petioled foliage—hairy, toothed, and ovate-shaped—forms a verdant slowly spreading basal clump that relishes even moisture and exhibits more heat tolerance than most glomerata species. Seldom offered and easily cultivated, ‘Caroline’ can be associated with pink-blooming Persicaria ‘Dimity’.
Size: 12" – 18" high x 18" wide.
