Bellflowers are an excellent choice for the rock garden, edging the border and in containers. They perform especially well in regions with cool nights during the summer.
Bellflower's flower seed can be sown indoors in starter containers. Press the flower seed into the soil but do not cover. Bottom water to help prevent mold growth. Bellflower seeds can also be directly sown outdoors into prepared beds after the last frost. Campanula Carpatica is a robust plant and works nicely in alpines or rock gardens.
Excellent in containers, hanging baskets, and window boxes as well. Campanulas are easily grown in average, medium wet, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. They require an average amount of water, as they do not tolerate really wet or overly dry conditions.
