Campanula portenschlagiana or ‘Dalmatian Bellflower’ is a beautiful annual or perennial plant that forms a mat of small rounded leaves. The flowers are star-shaped, blue-purple in color that blooms from spring through summer. Relatively cold hardy but requires shelter when temperature dips below much. It grows in full sun and in the part shade too, on a fairly loose, well drained and alkaline soil
Dalmation Bellflower produces beautiful mounds of purple bell-shaped flowers from late spring through summer. Low-growing plant is perfect for adding color in front of other perennials. Grows only 6-9" tall. Spreads 12". Prefers full sun to partial shade. Deer resistant.
