Charming purply-blue open-cup flowers on strong, slender stems. Not sure why it's called "blue peachbells" (aka peach-leaved bellflower) as there's nothing peach on it. It is pretty peachy-keen though. Lovely, long-lifed blooms.

Obtained from Mill Cottage Plants, Wookey, UK, whose owner is an RHS registered speaker. This is a beautiful campanula, flowers huge with an open 'cup in cup', colour is as in the photo. It has been in its spot for 5 years, and spreads nicely to form a compact patch of low growth almost prostate, spreading by shallow runners. It is approx. 3 feet in diamater now, and still spreading. It is said not to make seed and can only be grown by division. The stems arise in summer to approx. 3 feet, but will be weighed down a little with the weight of the flowers they are so big, at least 3" across, a surround of delphiniums adds nice contrast and perhaps some support.

If the flower stems are left on they will produce a second lot of flowers, an added bonus!
