Product Description

Bellflowers are among the most popular of perennials. This midsized variety is perfect for the sun or part-shade border. Plants form a spreading mound of light green leaves, bearing upright stems with huge drooping bells in a pleasing raspberry-pink shade. Clumps are inclined to spread vigorously, so plan to give this space. Easily divided in spring or autumn. Stems may need to be staked. Combines beautifully with Cranesbill Geraniums, Phlox or Hosta. Also excellent in containers or tubs.
