Beetles, Campanulas, and Siberian Irises - Knowledgebase Question

Question by dfgquilter

1. I have 18 inch blue campanulas. Do they also come in white?

2. I have very few blossoms on my Siberian Irises. What are their needs? I must be missing some important info.

3. Around the base of alot of my plants are small 1/2 inch black
beetles. Is it because my plants are too wet? They are always at the base. Should I spray them with something?

Thanks so much, Dorian

I can't identify the beetles without seeing them but it is possible they are water beetles and are hanging around because the soil is too wet. Campanulas do come in white so just look for them in your local garden center. Siberian irises can stop blooming if they are over crowded or if they are not getting enough sunshine. Best wishes with your garden.
