Campanula lactiflora 'Border Blues'


Campanula lactiflora 'Border Blues' is a special form of the milky bellflower with deep bluish purple star-like flowers.

Campanula lactiflora 'Border Blues' is a special form of the milky bellflower with deep bluish purple star-like flowers in large, conical clusters atop tall upright to slightly arching stems 3-4 feet tall in summer. It is a classic, old-fashioned cottage garden plant that offers whimsy and a reminiscence of simpler times. Plants are also long-lived and great for adding height in the middle to back of the border. Perfect in combination with English style roses including David Austins. Trim back fading flowers to encourage a second flush in late fall. Attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. Deer and rabbit resistant. Photo: Wikipedia.
