I have quite a few Campanula garganicas in my garden, mostly along two paths. They take sun or shade quite nicely. The ones in sun seem to do better and I had to cut them back after they bloomed this year to tidy them up. They also can be divided. The best thing is that they are evergreen in my climate and look nice year 'round.

I love this variety of campanula -- the chartreuse foliage and periwinkle star-shaped flowers are just beautiful together. This has done well for me in zone 4 with no protection; I just checked the tag on one I purchased recently and it did say hardy to zone 4. At any rate, a very nice border or rock garden perennial.
Update 2012 - starting to fill out and bloom quite a bit more this year, which is actually the third summer. These seem to appreciate more shade than I thought they would.

Loving this plant. It's foliage is interesting when not in bloom - a very nice chartreuse color. And the little flowers are adorable. I bought mine from Bluestone Perennials, and the flowers are much lighter in color than in the catalog. But, I'm still very happy with it.

Painfully slow....does not seem to do well in this climate....(Maryland -zone 7)
I have tried many varieties of Campanula and most seem to struggle here except the most agressive ones.

This beautiful little plant arrived as a total volunteer. Came up from under stone crop sedum that had been there a couple of years. No idea how it got there.

I live in zone 5b and this plant survived our horrible winter and nasty spring. It was not in an area with particularly good drainage either! I lost common things like native vince and echinacea that I'd had for years, yet this newly planted last fall plant made it in fine shape. BRAVO!

One of my favorite Campanulas, but a difficult one to establish. Sensitive to drying out and slow to spread, but great chartreuse leaf color. Worth working on!
