A carpet bellflower Potpourri

Below: However, there are so many invasive and ho-hum Campanulas that we limit this page to one stay-put, clump forming, long blooming species -- the carpet bellflower (Campanula carpatica).


'Blue Clips' and "White Clips' varieties of carpet bellflower took the gardening world by storm in the 1980's for their long bloom and non-aggressive clump-forming habit. We enjoy the blue violet species as much.

Like many fast-growing, extended bloom perennials, this one is most vigorous and attractive when it's young. So divide it frequently, every two or three years.
