Canterbury Bells in Florida

ellie479(10 FTL, FL)November 6, 2012

Hello everyone :]

This is my first post (!) I've been gleaning knowledge from everyone on here for quite awhile and just decided to create a profile and jump on in :]

Anyway - my question! I just bought some Burpee seeds at Lowes today (Aster, Cornflower, and Canterbury Bells). I was suckered in by the Canterbury Bells and did a quick search on my phone to see if they were growable here in FT Laud - which the packet says they are, but you know not to trust those packets 100% lol ;)

Anybody have any experience with these? I will be moving in about 9 months to Central Florida. I'm thinking maybe if I start them here I might have better luck with them up there as the weather seems to be a bit more moderate.

Thanks in advance everyone!

I'm sure you could get them to bloom and do okay; they don't like excessive heat for long periods so be sure to give them some shade from the hottest parts of the day. :) They might not get very tall either, as I'm noticing these cooler climate perennials tend to be very short.
