Campanula lactiflora ‘Blue Cross’

Milky Bellflower

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.110.220

This is an English selection of the Milky Bellflower. Plants form a medium-tall upright clump, bearing large heads or clusters of pale china-blue flowers throughout the early summer. Excellent for cutting, and a perfect companion to roses of all types. Also an excellent mid-border plant for using in pastel border schemes with other shades of blue, violet, pink and white. Removing fading flowers will help to encourage a second flush of bloom. Plants may need to be staked. Easily divided in spring or fall. In warm summer areas, choose a part-shade location.
