(B) to 3′. Cup & Saucer Canterbury Bells. “Bells that ring from ancient towers, Give their name to summer flowers” – Cicely Mary Barker (1853-1973).
A double-flowered form of the old-fashioned biennial, Canterbury Bells. Plants form a low rosette of green leaves in the first year. The following summer, upright stems bear many large dangling bells with broad calyces under the “cup” that are the same colour as the cup. These calyces form a “saucer,” hence the common name “Cup & Saucer” Campanula. We offer a mix which includes shades from white, through pink, rose, blue and lavender. Stems are superb for cutting. If grown in the ground, allow some plants to self-seed, which will produce another generation. We love to grow our in pots for display. Late spring to mid-summer blooming. Moist but well-drained soil. Sun to partial shade. 4 & T2
