Outstanding Qualities

A unique pale lilac–pink selection of the milky bellflower, ‘Loddon Anna’ is a classic old-fashioned cottage garden plant. In July it produces dense panicles with light lilac-pink star-shaped flowers, each bloom about one inch in size. The flowering stems can reach 4 to 5 feet tall making a lovely impact in the late summer border. Trim back fading flowers to encourage re-bloom later in the season. It is easy to grow and also makes a great cut flower.
