Me & Campanula are THROUGH!

Campanula has invaded its last in my garden. My last attempt was C. takesimiana (sp?) which was tame for 2 years then this spring it was EVERYWHERE. I dug it all out and I'm still finding little volunteers all over the place, grown back from the slightest fragment of root.

I'm not trusting campanula anymore. It just likes my soil way too much. Oh and anyone I gave seeds to, keep an eye on it!

I have one called Bernice. You would like it. It does not self seed. It has grown to about a 6" circle in about 5 years. It has a double sidefacing flower and is about 18" tall. The perfect campanula. In fact so perfect it is hard to share with it doesn't send runners all over the place. I only took 2 divisions off it this year. One for me for another flowerbed and one to sell.

That's beautiful Brenda!

Hey Gil,

Sounds like you need to deadhead more and watch them carefully. They will seed down low, they can be sneaky little buggers.

That is a pretty one Brenda.


RE: Me & Campanula are THROUGH!

Well, this one has big fleshy roots that take off in all directions and pop up a new plant every 4 inches. Where the soil is loose, I can pull out a whole string of them. I am gaining on them, I think there are only a few left. It's not a deadheading issue...

Brenda that one is pretty but I'm afraid I can't be tempted. My trust is broken. ;0)
