'Freya' bellflower

Got this one from Lindenburg last year, it's really a great looking dwarf plant and suppose to be a long bloomer that stays in bounds as compared to others, but do not feed heavily or plant in rich soil or it will flop. The color shown here is somewhat off, it's more purple than blue.

Very pretty and a lot more floriferous than other clustered bellflowers. I wonder if this one is as invasive?

Yes it is certainly very nice.

It's super pretty. Update us in 2 years if it has any children or not. I've still got a can of Round Up for the last "non-invasive" bellflower I was given seeds for, 7 years ago. >:(

Donna, below is a review of the plant. I find it provides a really nice little splash of color and if it continues to impress I'll be dividing and moving it all around the place.

Thankfully I had full hands or I would own this, despite bellflower warnings, as they had a nice specimen and the garden center today.

To slow myself down I will not take a cart when looking at plants so I have to stop when my hands are full to carry anymore...lol

Keep us updated on how it 'spreads'

WOW! This is super pretty! Thanks for sharing!!! :-)

I bought a large pot of Campanula Superba from Costco this year - I cannot wait to see how it looks next year! Oh yeah, it is supposed to spread a bit too....
