Bellflowers are popular perennials common both in our nature and our gardens. These maintenance-free plants are easy to grow and offer several flower colours: mostly violet and white, rarely blue, and even pink. They bloom from early summer until autumn – upon variety.

Samantha is no newcomer in the bellflower world. It is a proved and beloved variety, a c. carpatica hybrid, producing large flowers and 15-20 cm tall stems. Flowers are 2-3 cm across, combine violet and white, and bloom from June for about a month atop many branched, slender stems. Blooming time can be extended by regular deadheading and cutting back the entire plant after flowering will not only encourage production of new leaves but also new flowers that will keep popping up until the last sunny and warm days of autumn. Leaves are light green, narrowly heart-shaped but the shape is not very clear as the margins are richly frilled. Stems and leaves contain white sap which could cause discomfort if you are allergic.

Bellflowers like fertile, well-drained but evenly moist soil of almost any pH. They can be grown in full sun (never let it dry out completely) or part shade. Ideal for rockeries, as well as outdoor containers and troughs. Hardy to min. -34°C (USDA zone 4), allegedly it can take even deeper frost.
