Description

 

Campanulas are loved for their bell-like, usually blue flowers and long flowering season. Traditionally used in cottage garden schemes, campanulas look particularly lovely when grown under shrub roses. Campanula blooms are extremely attractive to bees and other pollinators.

Campanula ‘Sarastro’  is a hybrid campanula. Plants form a mound of dark green leaves, from which upright stems of huge drooping, violet-blue bellflowers appears in summer. For best results grow Campanula ‘Sarastro’ in moist but well-drained soil in sun to partial shade. Propagate plants by division in autumn or spring.

Campanula are late spring and summer flowering perennials that prefer partial sun – but many will tolerate deep-shade and full-ish sun. They grow well in a variety of soils – almost anywhere that isn’t too extreme. Campanula usually produce bell-shaped flowers that attract all sorts of wildlife.
