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. Milky bellflower is a medium tall species from Turkey and Caucasus.

BORDER BLUES® is a modern variety of milky bellflower with bright violet blue flowers with almost white throats. They are shortly funnel-shaped, open wide into a star shape, and appear atop about 80-90 cm tall, light green stems. The main flowering season begins in June, lasts for about a month, and if you cut the plant back afterwards it will produce a new mound of fresh and healthy foliage and short stems with flowers that will keep on blooming until the last sunny and warm days of early autumn.

Leaves are light green, narrowly ovate with gently serrated margins and conspicuous veins. Stems and leaves contain white sap which could cause discomfort if you are allergic. BORDER BLUES® bellflower makes dense tufts with many-branched stems.

Milky bellflower likes 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 very light shade. Thanks to its size it works best at the back of a perennial border or used solitarily mixed with other short growing perennials or small shrubs. Hardy to abt. -40 °C (USDA zone 3), and suitable for large outdoor pots.
