Campanula

Bellflowers

Familiar cottage garden perennials suitable for a variety of sites. Mostly in blues and purples there are also some whites and pinks.

We have chosen a select group of Campanula and prefer to grow a small range of really good, reliable plants rather than a huge range with some big questions marks.  The varieties we offer range from very low growing to quite tall but we have despatched any thugs (both spreaders and seeders) as well as any particularly prone to rust.  We have two types in our range:

Clump forming upright bellflowers are perhaps the more traditional cottage garden types that you may be familiar with.  Mostly blue or purple they tend to flower throughout summer and may be encouraged to repeat with some careful deadheading if you have the time and patience.

Low growing, clumps and carpet forming Campanulas are useful for edging borders and filling gaps between bigger herbaceous perennials.  The main species that fills this gap (pun intended, sorry) is Campanula poscharskyana which is a very hardy, reliable species with many named forms from white to deep blue, while it does spread it is a very controllable species and never runs riot.  We also grow a select form of Campanula portenschlagiana, 'Catharina' which is unusual in that species of not being an aggressive spreader.
