Carpathian Bellflower, Tussock Bellflower, Carpathian Harebell (Campanula carpatica)


Tough and compact, Campanula carpatica (Carpathian Bellflower) is a low-growing perennial with masses of large, upward-facing, bell-shaped flowers in shades of blue, purple or white over a long season. They are produced in such quantities that they nearly cover the entire plant.

  • Flowering in early summer, Carpathian Bellflowers will continue blooming for weeks, until early fall, if spent blossoms are regularly deadheaded.
  • They grow up to 4-12 in tall and wide (10-30 cm).
  • Most of them can be grown in rock gardens, in wall crevices and in troughs. Some are wonderful at the front of perennial borders or massed as a groundcover.
  • Easy to grow, Carpathian Bellflower require little care. They are virtually disease and pest free and rabbit resistant.
  • They thrive in full sun or part shade, in average, medium, well-drained soils. Prefer part shade in warmer climates.
  • Many will self-seed in favorable conditions, without being invasive, and remain well behaved in the garden.
