Description

Campanula Pritchards variety has large clustering heads of deep violet blue star shaped flowers on branching stems throughout summer.  The medium green leaves are lance shaped and set off the beautiful blooms.

The large  clusters of flowers appear from February to May, and the plants grow to about 60 cm with a spread of about 60 cm.

This is an old cottage garden classic, and has always been  appreciated for its stately elegance.

Campanula lactiflora likes sun or partial shade, in moist but well drained fertile soil. This will encourage plenty of growth and flowers.

It will retain its flower colour best in partial shade.

 

Sowing advice

For best results sow the seed as soon as you receive them. Sow in trays or pots. Just press the seeds into the soil as light is needed for germination.  Keep at 20 deg C. These seeds can be very slow to germinate, and as a rule they wait for spring before emerging whenever they are sown. Please be very patient, and do not discard the seed pan, no matter how long it takes for germination to occur
