Campanula cochlearifolia Bavarian Blue (Harebell, Canterbury Bells)

We purchased these pretty flowers to spill over the edge of some rocks that surround our evergreen azalea. Each year, I plant white alyssum and blue lobelia around the base of this area. It is my hope that the Bavarian blue campanulas will look pretty spilling over the rocks above and will complement the red, white, and blue below.

The three Bavarian Blue Campanulas came from Bluestone Perennials and look very healthy.

Height: Short 6" / Plant 10-12" apart
Bloom Time: Late Spring to Summer
Sun-Shade: Full Sun to Half Sun/ Half Shade
Zones: 5-8 Get Your Zone
Soil Condition: Normal, Clay
Flower Color / Accent: Blue / Blue

Description: Sky blue miniature trumpets cascade down the waxy low growing foliage in a living carpet of color. Neat and colorful all summer. Trouble free. 

General Information: Vigorous sprawling star covered beauty. Perfect spilling over edges. 

Plant Care: Remove about a third of the plant after blooming to freshen the foliage.

Features to Note: OK in containers - see FAQ for overwintering

As always, I will try to add a photo when they bloom.
