    Heads of unusually attractive fragrant flowers, which can vary from rose pink to dark purple, open their petals which are delicately marked deeper at the centres. Generally flowering from May to August, they live at heights usually between 2,000 to 8,500 feet. As a rule their chosen habitat is rocky, thin or sandy soils, foothills, mountains, particularly in dry areas including chaparral and woodland habitats, and on open or shaded slopes, so this is an indication of what they like. In their native USA they have been recorded from southeastern Washington and northern Oregon to southern California, and western Nevada. ... Learn More



    This rare and unique, new-to-gardens plant has been obtained from the Hungarian Botanic Garden at Vacratot, where it makes a slowly-spreading carpet of delicate stems carrying thin-tubed, flared-ended, sky blue flowers which have great value as they appear very late in the year, right into the first frosts, when almost all other bell flowers are long-gone. The last-flowering bellflower you can get! In the wild it grows in damp meadows in the foothills of Russia, northern Asia and Iran. It is also possibly the only "symphyandra" which has a gently-running perennial habit! ... Learn More



    From a clump of hairy, heart-shaped leaves arise many thin stems from the whole length of which, dangle shapely cream bells. "A picture of poise and beauty". (G.S.T.) ... Learn More

    Thread-like hairy stems bearing oval, toothed densely-felted, silvery silky hairy leaves, carry numerous blue-grey bells, hairy outside, which open in small loose clusters in late summer. Rather like a diminutive Campanula cashmiriana, this is a very uncommon and lovely high alpine from Pakistan to Bhutan, and in the Himalaya where it occurs on stony slopes and ledges at 3000-4700m. This is an ideal alpine house plant and perfect for exhibiting. ... Learn More



    This delicate little plant forms a small basal rosette of narrow, hairy leaves, with arching spires of blue bells which also are hairy inside (hence the origin of the Latin name). This plant is usually a short-lived perennial but generally self-seeds to make attractive drifts on a scree or rockery. ... Learn More



    From low, spreading clumps of smooth, shiny, toothed foliage (resembling birch leaves hence its latin name!) hang numerous pendant white bells, which sometimes have a slight shade of pink, the edges of the flowers having long hairs, somewhat like those of the bearded bellflower. From Armenia, this gem for the connoisseur is delightful in gritty fertile soil or hanging over the edge of a trough or in a crevice on the rock garden. It is different from almost all others but is an easy plant to grow ... Learn More



    This sumptuous clump-forming perennial has ovate leaves and erect stems bearing very large, nodding, narrowly bell-shaped, pale grey-mauve flowers .

    A very old favourite for the rock garden, or even the front of the border or in a container, this plant produces a succession of wide-open, upwards-facing, blue cup-shaped flowers from July to September. ... Learn More



    One of the most handsome bell-flowers, this large plant is easily recognizable by its dense, blue-flowered umbel, similar to, but bigger than that of its close relative, the "Clustered bellflower"(C. glomerata). Although it is usually short-lived, it keeps going easily from year to year as it produces enormous quantities of seed, one plant producing up to 20–30,000 seeds. The flowers are especially attractive to bees. ... Learn More



    This rare, low-growing rock plant from Turkey with large, beautifully-shaped white flowers in midsummer, is an an amazing alpine plant that grows in narrow vertical rock crevices in Turkey. It forms small tufts of grey, toothed leaves and bears disproportionately-large, open-faced, creamy-white bells that pop open from huge ribbed pink buds. This fabulous species is not too difficult to grow if provided with sharp drainage and winter cover, or is grown in an alpine house as a show plant. Jim and Jenny Archibald collected many campanula species, and it was they who introduced the famous white bellflower Campanula troegerae, from the area close to the river Choruh near Yusufeli. And it was they who were probably the first collectors offering seed of Campanula choruhensis, which was initially listed as C. troegerae, as C. choruhensis was as yet unknown to science! Very few seeds. ... Learn More



    This tiny specimen, an R.H.S. 'AGM' Award Winner, is an easy-to-grow rock garden plant with blue, drooping, bell-shaped flowers over a long period in summer when it is very free-flowering.
