Bellflower - La Belle
Bellflower La Belle, Campanula persicifolia 'La Belle', is a delightful new bellflower with deep blue, bell-shaped flowers that are held high on upright stems from early through late summer.
The flowers are very long lasting when cut for bouquets. Campanula 'La Belle' forms a basal mound of long, leathery, evergreen dark green leaves.
The compact growth habit makes it a good choice for smaller gardens or containers. Campanula grows best in fertile soil with a neutral to alkaline pH. Lime can be added to the soil to obtain these conditions. Keep the soil moist but make sure it is well-drained.
Members of this bellflower group will grow in either full sun or partial shade, though some shade is recommended in areas with very hot summers.
Cutting the plants back hard after flowering will keep them more compact, and may also result in a second flush of blooms.
