What does a Campanula look like?
Beside this, what does a Bellflower look like?
With bell-shaped, tubular or star-shaped flowers in shades of blue, white, pink and red, they have growth habits that range from low and creeping to tall and upright. Bellflowers look lovely in many garden settings; their showy flowers and informal habit are the perfect fit in a cottage garden.
how do you keep a Campanula blooming?
- Plant purple bellflowers in full sunlight and cut back tall plants or move large structures that create shaded conditions around them.
- Maintain moist, aerated, well-drained soil.
- Fertilize campanula plants with a general purpose fertilizer, such as 5-10-10, once in the spring and once again in the middle of summer.
Also question is, does Campanula like sun or shade?
Growing to heights ranging from 3″ to 30″, there is a Campanula for almost every garden situation, from the front of the rock garden to the back of the perennial border. Light/Watering: Most varieties will do well in full sun or light shade, the latter vital in the South for all but C. persicifolia and C. pyramidalis.
What to do with campanula after flowering?
Summer Cleanup. If the campanula flowers a second time, you can cut it back again after it finishes flowering. Cut back severely, removing all the stems down to the basal foliage, the leaves closest to the ground and crown of the plant. Avoid cutting into the crown, because this can kill the campanula.
