Adenophora Lady Bells does anyone else have this plant?

1 comment

Last year I purchased this plant in a 9cm pot called Adenophora as I was looking for plants to grow in my sunny, dry garden. I had not heard of it before but was very pleased when I discovered how it grew. It is similar to a Campanula with blue, bell-shaped flowers that open up uniformly along the stems and about 30 – 50 cm tall. It has survived the winter well. I would like to know if there are other cultivars available. I have sown some Adenophora bulleyana seed and wait to see how they grow. I am not sure what my original plant was named as I lost the label but the flowers are quite a dark blue and the leaves and stems quite a dark green. Would be grateful for any further info as I know nothing about this plant.

Adenophora Lady Bells ...

I looked this up on the internet... likes moist soil ... can be invasive because spreads by underground stems .... Prefers sun or semi-shade... Flowers are fragrant...

I hope this helps :o)
