This sweet little Campanula gives a LOT of bang for the buck! Relatively easy to grow, and the blooms are plentiful, large in relation to overall plant size, and a gorgeous blue! Mine was in the front of a small raised bed rock garden and when in full bloom was a knock-out!

This bellflower is a hybrid between C. carpatica var. turbinata and C. pulla. The small plant forms a mound 4-6" high with medium-sized blue bells. Great plant for the rock garden or alpine trough.
