Forming a basal rosette of narrow, toothed, bright green leaves, Campanula persicifolia 'Alba' (Peach-Leaved Bellflower) sends up sturdy stems clad with narrow, pointed leaves that are reminiscent of those of the peach tree, hence its common name. In early to mid summer, they bear large, nodding, bell-shaped, pure white flowers which add grace to the garden. Charming and eye-catching, they will persist longer if deadheaded. This Bellflower is an excellent choice for the border or mixed containers.

  • Grows up to 2-3 ft. tall (60-90 cm) and 12-18 in across (30-45 cm). This plant has a tendency to modestly spread by self-seeding and offsets in satisfactory growing conditions. However it is never invasive.
  • Thrives in full sun or part shade in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Prefers part shade in warmer climates. Needs regular moisture!
  • Ideal for beds, borders, cottage gardens, naturalized areas. Plant in groups for best visual impact. Makes excellent fresh cut flowers with the flowers lasting up to a week in a vase!
  • Easy to grow, relatively disease and pest free, this low care perennial is also deer and rabbit resistant!
  • Deadhead spent flowers to encourage new blooms and cut back to basal foliage after flowering to prevent self-seeding. Divide clumps every 3-4 years. Propagate by seed, cuttings or division.
