This plant has grown rather slowly in my zone 5 garden. I love the color and shape of the flowers. While not quite as showy as some of my other campanula, it is a nice background plant because of it's height. Blooms in late spring/early summer; does not seem prone to disease or insect problems. Seems to bloom better when it is not crowded by other plants.
