Campanula poscharskyana

We love this bellflower which carpets and softens the base of our well-head here and like good-old Erigeron karvinskianus, thrives in the cracks of paths, walls and steps, with no soil.

Description

We love this bellflower which carpets and softens the base of our well-head here and like good-old Erigeron karvinskianus, thrives in the cracks of paths, walls and steps, with no soil. In bloom for months, just tidy it up (with scissors) every once in a while and it will quickly come back and flower again.

Care Tips

Prefers a lightly shaded position with a moist but well-drained soil. Allow to trail from pots or grow as groundcover at the front of a border, will also creep across walls and paving. Requires very little attention once established.
