CAMPANULA

This variety is glomerata superba. The stem bears many large headed clusters of dark purple-violet flowers.

This has to be my plant of the moment, and one of my many tasks for this year is to introduce it to different parts of the garden.

Well, that shouldn't be hard since it really takes and spreads when you transplants bits of it. Ask me how I know. ;-) I love it too though, very hardy and cheery.

I like that, it's a great colour and shape! xx

Such an amazing colour and form.. I find it really satisfying to tranplants bits to fill in gaps and save money! :) Gx

I have never seen this type before. It is a really rich purple colour isn't it?

We share a love of campanulas then Louise. Must get this one again to add to my collection-I had forgotten how lovely the colour is. I hope it spreads well in the garden.

That's lovely Louise. Sadly mine got eaten, perhaps I should get some more and take as good a care of them as you have.

Hope you had a great weekend

I've always liked this campanula. When I first started a garden in Ottawa, I filled it with campanula - I love the infinite variety of Campanula flowers.

It's glorious, Louise! Could you introduce it into my garden?

What? Your campanula is already blooming? Mine are still wondering when the sun is going to shine!

Lovely photo, Louise.

A gorgeous shade of purple, and so lush-looking.
