Canterbury Bells (Campanula Medium)
Although this flower is available in a variety of forms, it’s the charming cup-and-saucer flower shape that captures gardeners’ hearts. Technically a biennial (produces only foliage the first year, flowers the second, then dies), in warmer parts of the country it often will bloom in just one year. It’s sometimes called bellflower, and is available in white, pink and blue. These large, deep-cupped, pastel flowers actually look like church bells! Big clusters of bell-shaped blooms cover sturdy stems up to 3’ tall. You get a mix of soft pink, soothing blue, snowy white or rich purple.
