How to Care for Get Mee Campanula

Overview

Get Mee campanula (Campanula portenschlagiana) is a small, perennial flowering plant that is hardy to USDA zones 3 to 8. The Get Mee variety is one of the more hardy of the species. Blooming from July to September, the Get Mee provides purple or white, star-shaped flowers to attract bees and butterflies into the garden. Get Mee is a versatile campanula that is generally grown as a ground cover but also thrives in tight spaces, rock gardens, and adds a shot of color to a mixed flower hanging basket. Get Mee is easy to care for, grows fast and will spread.

Step 1

Grow your campanula in an area that gets bright but filtered sunlight--perhaps under the eaves of the house or the canopy of a tree.

Step 2

Ensure that the soil in which the campanula is planted drains quickly. Although the plant is tolerant of a wide range of soil textures and pH, the roots should not sit in water.

Step 3

Water the campanula to keep the soil moist but not soggy.

Step 4

Fertilize the Get Mee campanula in mid-spring with an all-purpose fertilizer, according to the rate listed on the package.

Step 5

Deadhead the plant frequently to keep it in bloom. This involves pinching off or cutting dead and dying blooms.
