Populating the open woodlands and alpine meadows of southwestern Europe plus the European Alps, this signature Campanula relative premiers extraordinary candle-like blue-violet flowers all summer long. The upright, dense panicles adorn a compact clumping cushion of lanceolate and glabrous green basal leaves that spring from a carrot-shaped taproot. Referenced in the Brothers Grimm Rapunzel fairytale, seldom cultivated Betonian Rampion lends peerless, spiky cool-hued accents to cut arrangements or the rockery, where it craves cool conditions with adequate drainage as well as poor, lean, somewhat acidic soil.
Size: 15" – 18" high x 9.8" wide.
