I received this plant as a seedling from a fellow DG'er and it has taken two years for it to get big enough to finally bloom. It's an awesome plant here in Zone 5....it's about 12 - 18" tall and is planted in part sun/part shade. I don't water it too much....mostly just natural rainfall patterns. The color is amazing and the plant is full of blooms!

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!
