Samantha bellflower

‘samantha’ bellflower campanula hybrid

We grew ‘Samantha’ at our test garden in part shade and it bloomed beautifully. It’ll rebloom in late summer or fall if you deadhead. This hybrid stays a dainty size, perfect for edging a garden. The 1-in.-wide flowers are fragrant and proportionally larger for its foliage and size than most other bellflowers. Each one is a blend of purple shades with a dot in the center. And the flowers face straight up so the markings show well. No head bowing for this bellflower!

TYPE Perennial SIZE 4 to 6 in. tall by 10 to 16 in. wide BLOOM All summer if deadheaded LIGHT Full sun to part shade SOIL Moist, well-drained PESTS None serious HARDINESS Cold: USDA zones 5 to 7 Heat: AHS zones 7 to 1
