I planted a couple Telham Beauty Bellflowers last year. They produced gorgeous clouds of light-blue flowers. I was able to really extend their blooming season by deadheading the individual flowers on a regular basis. Yes it's a lot of work deadheading individual flowers, but I think it was really worth it with these.

I planted this as a very young plant about a year ago, and it just started to bloom here, about a week later than other local bellflowers but absolutely worth the wait! The flowers are a satiny pale blue which seems to have a sheen in the sun, and despite the previous comment, the flower-laden stalks are holding up quite well in my very windy (for my region) garden. Even though this is its first year blooming, it's already sent up four bloom stalks (two have open flowers so far) and appears to be sending out more even as its first flowers bloom.

Prefers a moderately rich soil that is moist and well drained. Fairly easy to maintain, though. Plant in sun but away from strong winds. Divide every 2- to 3-years. Spreads rather quickly. Great for rock and cottage gardens. Flowers are slightly pendulous.

Easily grown from seed.
