Bellflower - Seeds & Bulbs

Bellflower, Clustered
Acaulis

(Campanula glomerata)

This small Campanula fits into places the larger ones don't. It's called 'Clustered Bellflower' because of the tightly clustered flowers at the top of short stems. Because of its height (4" to 10") Acaulis is used as a groundcover or in the front of planter beds. Plant in groups of 5 or more for more dramatic effect. It may need afternoon shade in very hot summer climates.
