The Greek bellflower, Campanula formanekiana has been superb in the crevice garden this spring. This amazing monocarpic (dies after flowering) species take three years to flower, and when it does, it puts on one heck of show. It’s namesake was Czech botanist, Eduard Formanek (1845-1900). We’re hoping for a good seed set. Hardiness is Zone 7a-9a, at least.
Flowering now at Juniper Level is one of my all-time favorite perennials…Campanula porscharkyana ‘Camgood‘. This amazing perennial flowers as well in full sun as in light shade. Best of all, it’s easy to grow and doesn’t run like many bellflowers. I can’t imagine gardening without it. Hardiness is Zone 4-7 at least.
