CAMPANULA LATIFOLIA MACRANTHA
Coming up each year with the most lovely show of flowers, each flowering stem, up to 4ft high, will drip with long flared tubular bells in a soft lavender blue. The seed heads that follow, like clustered round balls up and down the stem, can be used as a decoration in themselves. It takes a dry site very well!
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.
