Bearded Bellflower

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 including them in almost every garden design.

Endemic to the meadows and open woodlands of the Polish Alps and Italian Dolomites plus a region in Norway, this exquisite, seldom offered alpine beauty is named for the unique hairy fringe that extends from nodding porcelain-blue flower tips. Bearded Bellflower’s delicate blooms prance on erect, nearly leafless stems, rising from narrow, lance-shaped pale green foliage. Sustained by a large perennial taproot, the small rough-textured basal rosette begs lime-free, not-so-rich, well- drained soil in the rockery, scree garden or a raised bed, where it may be short-lived but happily reseeds.

Blooms May–July

Size: 8" – 15" high x 8" wide.

Hardy to zone 5.
