  • Campanula x Belinda

    12cm. Beautiful, comparatively large, soft blue flowers in June-July, with a repeat flowering in August, though fewer flowers second time around! It seemed fairly well behaved to me to begin with, but after a couple of seasons in a trough I found it started to run around in a rather intrusive manner, so I would recommend keeping it in a container of its own!! For sunny well-drained areas.
