Campanula Iridescent Bells

Canterbury Bells

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.111.750

(=‘Iribella’) An old-fashioned biennial. At one time widely grown, these still deserve a place more often in modern gardens. Plants form a low rosette of green leaves in the first year. In the following summer, upright stems will bear loads of large dangling bells. The young buds are deep purple and open to pale lavender. Stems are superb for cutting. Allow some plants to self seed, which will produce another generation for future years. Slugs can sometimes cause trouble, be on the watch! USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
