I bought this white campanula this year. Will it get bigger and bushier than this ? Will it just take time and get bigger each year. Sorry I dont have much experience with campanula like this.
Any advice on how best to deal with this plant ? Thank you.
This looks like a Campanula glomerata var. alba (White Clustered Bellflower). It will certainly grow wider over the years. I have 2 specimens in my garden, planted approx. 5 years ago, which have just finished flowering this season. Each spot is about 60 x 60 cm. Here is a photo.
Wow Wonderful Its gone on my wish list
Oh wow, that picture from Papi Jo has certainly given me hope ! Correct id as well being Campanula glomerata var alba. Thank you.
Glad this pic of my C. glomerata var. alba gave you hope. It would have been better to plant it in groups of 3 specimens for more immediate effect in your border. However, you'll have to be patient. And if your specimen does grow and develop you'll be able to divide and replant to occupy a larger space of your ground.
Do remember to regularly deadhead the stems immediately after they have flowered. In flower in May-June. Then you have the green carpet of green leaves until it disappears for the Winter season.
thanks for the tip re dead heading, will get out there and check shortly.
planting in 3's is best, sometimes it just boils down to budget unfortunately. I will just have to have patience and divide when it gets bigger. thank you for advice.
That's a beauty. On my wish list too.
And watch out for slugs in spring - they just love the new, juicy, soft shoots
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
