After the second year my plants reached the height of 2 metres, so they need a position at the back of the border and strong staking. I find they divide well.

Very floriferous and can get quite large (over 4 feet) if well watered. One of the few fragrant bellflowers and also one of the few that is pink. Deep tap root so avoid transplanting once established. First-rate plant.
