Campanula garganica ‘Dickson's Gold’
goldleaf Adriatic bellflower
This smaller growing campanula was selected for its bright golden leaves. In early spring a tuft of acid yellow foliage tops this diminutive perennial which gradually increases to a well controlled mound. Starry pale blue flowers cover the golden foliage in late June and July; after flowering, the foliage becomes bright chartreuse.

Culture NotesThis slow growing perennial is best in full sun to light or open shade. It prefers a rich moist or well-drained soil. Provide regular watering during the summer. After flowering, gently shear off the old flower stalks and up to one-third of the plant to keep it looking its best throughout the growing season.
