Living down on the San Francisco Pennisula, my micro climate has allowed this plant to grow and bloom over 8 months of the year. This is my 4th year with the plant and it is a slow spreader. The blooms are like mini foxglove blooms with their internal spots and long lasting on the plant. It has grown well with a low watering, but consistent 3x a week pattern. It gets maybe 4 hours of full midday sun per day and does not burn or wilt. Definitely one of my favorite Campanulas!
