Buy Campanula lactiflora milky bellflower: Best in partial shade

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: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Tall, branching stems bearing clusters of deep lilac or slate-blue bell-shaped flowers appear from July to September among toothed, mid-green leaves. This tall bellflower is a cottage garden classic and is perfect towards the back of a mixed or herbaceous border. It's a happy companion for old roses, it self-seeds freely, and the flower colour is retained best in partial shade.

  • Garden care: Protect the tender foliage from slugs and deadhead regularly to prolong flowering and prevent seeding. Apply a generous 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.
