Positive ms_greenjeans On Jul 5, 2011, ms_greenjeans from Hopkins, MN (Zone 4a) wrote:

This is an excellent bellflower. It has nicer foliage than campanula glomerata and is sturdier than the peach-leaved bellflower. It has a nice medium height and the lovely purple/periwinkle flowers. It blooms for quite a long time if deadheaded but otherwise requires very little care or maintenance.

Med ht. 20-36"- plant 14" apart. zone 3/4-8. A frilly double flowering Bellflower with sturdy stems and crinkled foliage. Blooming abundantly in early summer, then long into fall if deadheaded.
