Campanula

Campanula lactiflora in a classic colour combination with pale yellow giant scabious, Cephalaria gigantea

Common name: Bellflower.

A very large and varied group of plants from ground hugging alpines to tall imposing border plants. We avoid the very invasive species, but some will self seed and some spread by underground stems. They are not fussy about soil type but most need some moisture in summer. Best in a lightly shaded spot but will grow well in sun or heavier shade.

Very valuable for bumblebees.

A member of the Campanulaceae family.
