Very floriferous, Campanula medium ‘Champion Pink’ (Canterbury Bells) is an upright biennial with a profusion of large, broadly bell-shaped, pink flowers, 2 in. wide (5 cm). Blooming from late spring to mid-summer, the flowers are borne atop long leafy stems above a basal rosette of lance-shaped, dark green leaves. Excellent source of nectar or pollen, they attract honey bees and butterflies. Old-fashioned but lovely, Canterbury Bells are well-suited to perennial borders and cottage gardens.

  • Grows in sturdy clumps, up to 20-26 in. tall (50-65 cm) and 12-18 in. wide (30-45 cm).
  • Thrives in full sun or part shade, in fertile, moist, well-drained soils. This plant tolerates a wide range of soil types if well-drained
  • Ideal for beds, borders, underplanting shrubs or roses, cottage gardens, or containers. Plant in groups for the best visual impact.
  • Easy to grow, this low-care perennial is also deer and rabbit-resistant and adored by hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees.
  • Watch for snails and slugs, powdery mildew, and rust diseases.
  • Do not cut back after flowering if self-seeding is desired. However, removing the spent flower spikes may encourage a second flush of flowers.
  • Easily divided in spring or fall.
  • Propagate by seed. Surface sow seeds from late spring to early summer. In milder areas sow directly in the fall
