This beautiful plant made it through our wet/windy winter in 10a. It is now about 24" in height (note hydrangeas behind) and should flower this season. Flower stalk rises out of the rosette with red/brown interesting flowers. Mother plant dies after flowering, but reseeds freely.
From the Canary Islands (land of the weird & wonderful) comes this super rare & fantastical Campanula relative. EASY to grow, it will reach 4-5’ tall in bloom its 2nd year.
in late Spring of year 2, prepare to have your mind blown when it makes a pyramidal inflorescence 4’ across bearing hundreds of fanciful chartreuse blooms. You’ll be calling your friends over.
