How to Grow Bellflower



Bellflowers got their name for the beautiful clusters of bell-shaped flowers they produce in early summer. The stalks produce up to a dozen purple-blue flowers. These easy to grow plants bloom in early July, and continue to bloom up to the first frost. They are a member of the Campanula flower family.

Belflowers are hardy perennials, growing 24" - 30". The plants begin to bloom in the second year. They are at home in rock gardens, and in a variety of garden landscapes.


Plant Propagation:

Bellflower are grown from seed. Directly seed Bellflower into your flower garden after the soil has begun to warm in the spring.

Bellflowers can be started indoors in seed trays 4 - 6 weeks before the last frost in your area.

Seeds take two to three weeks to germinate. When starting indoors, a germination mat is very useful.  


How to Grow Bellflowers:

Grow Bellflower in full sun, and a rich, well drained soil.

Sow seeds early in the season and cover lightly with 1/8" soil. Space seeds or seedlings 12-18" apart.

The plants are  tolerant of dry soil conditions. Water plants during extended dry periods. Add a general purpose fertilizer once or twice  during the growing season.

Once your Bellflower are established, they will grow well and bloom until frost. As a hardy perennial, they can survive light frosts.


Insect and Disease:

Bellflower are seldom bothered by major insect or disease problems. If problems occur, treat with insecticides, repellents, or fungicide as needed.
