Campanula portenschlagiana ‘Resholdt's Variety’
With vibrant violet-blue blooms, this selection has a slightly richer flower color than the typical species and is also less vigorous in its growth. The beautiful flowers are produced over a long period of time from late spring well into summer and the foliage becomes a dense evergreen mat that is useful for filling crevices in a rockery or spilling over the edge of a container. Its spreading habit makes it ideal to weave around shrubs in the garden. The root system is not very competitive and will not overrun shallow rooted plants.
