Bellflower - Acaulis
The Bellflower Clustered Acaulis, 'Campanula glomerata 'Acaulis', is the perfect perennial for edging paths and borders. This small Campanula fits into places the lager ones don't. It is called Clustered Bellflower because of the tightly clustered flowers at the top of the short stems. When planted in groups of five or more, they provide a dramatic effect. The 1 inch long, bell-shaped, dark blue flowers flare at the mouth and are clustered at the top of short, rigid stems. Clustered Bellflowers bloom in early summer for 3 to 6 weeks.
Campanula are not picky about soils but prefer well drained soils that are neutral to slightly alkaline. Soil should be moist but not soggy. They like cool roots so mulch is recommended where soils or exposures are hot. Plant in the spring 2 weeks before average last frost date or early fall, and at least 2 months before first frost. This Bellflower is used in rock gardens, borders, edging for paths, borders and for ground cover.
