Campanula latifolia 'Amethyst'

Large flowered bellflower

This is a very hardy and extremely elegant Campanula that can be used to great effect in many situations. 

The large flowered bellflowers are associated with cottage gardens but try this in a wild garden or naturalised in light woodland. 

As long as the plant gets a few hours sunshine each day it will thrive. 'Amethyst' is an outstanding plant for the border with tall upright stems bearing large, lilac blue, trumpet-shaped blooms in summer. In time, it will form a large clump and if happy will self seed. 

When young, the foliage will need protection from slugs and staking may be necessary in windy areas. Deadhead to prolong flowering.
