Campanula rotundifolia ‘Olympica’

Bluebells of Scotland

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.110.500

Bellflowers are among the most popular of perennials. This species is a native wildflower all over the Northern hemisphere, especially loved in Scotland where many poems and songs refer to it lovingly. Plants form a low mound of fine, grass-like leaves, with short sprays of delicate lavender-blue bells appearing through the summer. Remove spent flowers to encourage more buds. Nice for cutting. Easy to grow in the perennial border, rock garden, or in mixed containers. Also takes well to naturalizing in meadow plantings. Best in areas with cool summer climates.
