Bellflower fits your garden’s style
‘Grandiflora Alba’ peachleaf bellflower’s darker green foliage and white blooms have a crisp, clean, almost formal feel. But bellflower stems lean a little, so they fit in with a casual cottage style garden, too.
Clump together 3 to 5 ‘Grandiflora Alba’ plants to add impact right away — peachleaf bellflower doesn’t spread like some of its relatives.

Get great cut flowers
Peachleaf bellflower keeps blooming for up to a month with deadheading. And it makes a great cut flower, though plants aren’t quite as vigorous as other bellflowers — it seems to be especially susceptible to root rot — you can help them live longer by providing excellent soil drainage.
