Campanula plants

Campanula plantsThe Campanula are a showy genus of plants, mostly hardy perennials, which need no special treatment. They are readily raised from seed, or division of roots.

The less hardy kinds may be sown on a hotbed or in the greenhouse, and when large enough potted off. Campanula Mayii is a grand plant for hanging baskets, and also grows well trained up sticks in a pyramidal form. A rich, gritty soil suits them all.

The tall-growing varieties make fine pot-plants. Flower them in July. Their height is about 1 to 5 feet.
