Dwarf Clustered Bellflower

Bellflowers are among the most popular of perennials. This selection will form a low patch of large green leaves, bearing taller stems with clusters of showy deep-purple funnel-shaped flowers in early summer. Inclined to spread into a patch but easily managed by dividing in spring or fall. Excellent for edging or in a large rock garden. Also well-suited to tubs and mixed containers. May benefit from a hard clipping back immediately after blooming, to maintain a low, compact mound. Keep this away from delicate neighbouring alpine plants which might get smothered.
