Buy Campanula lactiflora 'Prichard's Variety' milky bellflower ( syn. Campanula Pritchard's Variety ): An abundance of lilac-blue bells

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Upright leafy stems are topped with showy clusters of violet-blue, trumpet-shaped flowers from midsummer to early autumn. A cottage favourite that is ideal for adding height to the border, it looks wonderful when planted next to old-fashioned roses.

  • Garden care: Protect the tender foliage from slugs and deadhead regularly to prolong flowering. Apply a generous 5-7cm layer of mulch or well-rotted compost around the base of the plant in spring. Stake with bamboo canes or brushwood in spring before the flowers appear.

Beautiful colour


Lovely plant, excellent in a mixed border. If I had more space I'd definitely buy more!




Bit stringy, but ok


These campanulas turned out OK. They were a bit stringier than expected, but in a few years they might fill out.
