Campanula or Bellflowers come in numerous shapes and sizes, and depending on the type, are suitable for a number of different locations. As suggested by its name, many of the flowers are bell-shaped, but some are star-shaped or cupped. Hues of purple and blue are the most common, although white and sometimes pink are also available. While many are perennials, others are annuals or biennials.

Most prefer a sunny location in soil that drains well. However, if your summers are particularly hot, afternoon shade is a good idea. Perennials can be set into the ground at the same depth as they were growing in the nursery container. Space plants 12 to 18 inches apart. Water well. Deadheading (removing faded flowers) will result in continuous blooms throughout the growing season. It is a good idea to dig up the plants every few years, separate them and replant in the fall.
