Campanula poscharskyana

Serbian bellflower

Outstanding Qualities

This very vigorous species is great for a brilliant flowering groundcover. Long lasting, bell shaped, lavender-blue flowers are borne in abundance from late spring to early summer. This spreading perennial will fill in cracks and crevices and is wonderful as a filler for rockeries. It is one of the toughest and best of the low blue flowered campanulas.

Culture Notes

This evergreen perennial grows well 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.
