Campanula sarmatica 'Hemelstraling'
- Position: full sun or partial shade
- Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: June and July
- Hardiness: fully hardy
From amongst the clumps of woolly, heart-shaped foliage, slender stems arise in late spring and early summer carrying open clusters of lilac-blue bells. A treat for naturalised planting schemes or the herbaceous border, it mingles well with most shades of pink and purple as well as cool white and silver.
- Garden care: Protect the tender foliage from slugs and snails. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted compost around the base of the plant in spring. Stake with bamboo canes or brushwood in spring before the flowers appear. Deadhead to prolong flowering.
