Gardeners' Notes:

Positive coriaceous On Dec 12, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

Showy and floriferous, this is one of the best bellflowers for the garden. The flowering season can be very long, however faded flowers are conspicuously ugly and need regular deadheading to look good. If you cut the stems to the ground after the first flush, this generally sends up a second set for a fall flowering.

Flower stems generally need support here. 'Sarastro' is a little better in this respect.

'Kent Belle' is a hybrid between C. latifolia and C. takesimana, but it spreads slowly and isn't aggressive like the latter.

The flowers are a very pretty purple. If you cut the plants back after flowering, it will re-flower in the fall.

Neutral echoes On Jul 6, 2008, echoes from South of Winnipeg, MB (Zone 3a) wrote:

This plant benefits from some support to best show off the hanging blossoms. Increases steadily.
