This delightful tiny campanula relative with deep lavender-purple bells has high value because of its unusual blooming in late summer and autumn when most others have long-gone. A hardy Korean species forming spreading rosettes of serrated dark-green leaves.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
