Tolerant of neglect and thriving in shade, this is one highly unusual and charismatic member of the Campanula family and so easy to grow! First, it forms a semi-succulent little sub-shrub with somewhat woody stems. Next it bears dense whorls of surprisingly thick and glossy deep green leaves. Then come the fireworks! Branching spikes to 18” tall burst into a stunning mass of thick waxy pink 1.5 – 2” “church bells” that last quite a while. It doesn’t usually bloom till it’s a year old, but amazing things come to those who wait. After its incredible performance, it may go to Campanula heaven, but not before generously self-sowing for future thrills. Rich, well-drained soil is best.
