Which are your favourite Campanula
After admiring Victorias picture of Campanula 'Iridescent Bells' yesterday (and adding it to my wish list) it got me thinking which were my favourites and everyone elses, so here are mine
Campanula 'Elizabeth' kindly sent to me by a friend couldn't believe the size of the bells when it first flowered.
Campanula 'Alliariifolia' grown from mixed Plantworld seed think I've Id'd it right
Campanula 'Makaschvilii' another from the mixed seed, love this one but only got one plant so once the weather dries up I'm hoping there'll be some seed so I can grow more, flowers none stop all summer if you keep chopping back the arching flower stalks.
And who could resist this one! Campanula Takesmana 'Beautiful Trust' this ones sterile so just keeps producing flowers none stop.
And the pink, lower growing version, 'Pink Octopus', swapped a bit of the white with a friend for this
And last but not least 'Campanula Thyrsoides' the only yellow campanula, grown from Chilterns seed, don't know why this isn't more widely grown, grows anywhere here sun to full shade, sandy soil to the heaviest clay areas of my garden, the first year it forms a rosette of leaves and flowers the second, listed as biennial and perennial, I was told it would die after flowering but I've had some come back for several years, not all though so best to collect seed.
So which are your favourites ?
