Debsbloom: You're surely welcome! I'd think it was pretty warm in your neck of the woods for campanulas. How is it taking the heat? Our climate is cool and damp, so the bellflowers love us here. What's your temp this time of year?

Generally, this time of year the highs are in the 90's and the lows in the upper 60's. Not much rain this time of year. The bellflower is growing in the shade and is tough. I had it in a very small pot the first year I had it... I fogot about it and it survived the winter outside under the rose bush.

That's great. I didn't know they'd do well in your climate. We are already into fall now. Some of the cottonwood leaves have already fallen, and the rain is falling in earnest. I'm afraid I'd melt into a puddle in 90 degree weather. I'm too aclimented for Alaska!
