Campanula (Bellflower) kam-PAN-yoo-luh
Campanula is a group of over 300 annual, biennial and perennial plants that span several sizes and colors. The primary characteristic is the upturned, open cup-shaped flowers in hues of pink and white but primarily lavender or light blue. The plants will spread over the seasons and the lower growing varieties make excellent ground cover. Most bellflowers begin blooming in July and keep on flowering until frost. Caring for bellflowers does not require any expertise. As with most perennials, they are hardy plants that tolerate quite a lot of extreme weather and arid conditions. Bellflower care includes deadheading to promote more blooms and a longer-lasting display. You can also cut it down to the ground from late winter to early spring to rejuvenate the plant.
