Clustered Bellflower

Campanula glomerata | Rating: 0 votes | Print / Pdf

Grows dense clusters of bells shaped flowers, and so nearly called the Clustered Belltower.

Campanula glomerata, or the Clustered Bellflower, is well named, due to the dense clusters of bell shaped flowers that cover it during the summer months. These dark blue to purple blooms contrast beautifully against its dark green foliage and it’s a decidedly easy plant to successfully cultivate. Looks fabulous in a cottage garden, and will attract bees and butterflies when it’s in flower. Plant in a sheltered position in full sun or partial shade and rest assured that it is well suited to coping with the coldest of the British winters.
