Campanula Persicifolia ‘Takion Blue’, Peach Leaved Bellflower, Zones 3-9
The Peach-leaved Bellflowers are popular old cottage garden perennials, cultivated for centuries. This is an outstanding compact strain, with the classic cup-shaped violet-blue bell flowers (2-2.5”) but with a more showy upwards and outfacing habit. Excellent for cutting. Removing individual faded flowers will keep plants blooming for weeks on end. It forms basal mounds of long leathery evergreen leaves.Easy to please in any sunny border setting and terrific in containers. A recent introduction, this F1 hybrid was developed by breeder American Takii.
