A popular bellflower forming low cushions of heart-shaped, bright green leaves with lots of clear blue, cup-shaped flowers from early summer that upwardly face the sun.


Happiest in a sunny spot. Use in a rock or gravel garden, edging a path or growing in a patio container.


Easy to grow in a well-drained soil. Add some coarse grit to the planting hole if your soil is heavy and likely to stay wet in winter.

This diminutive bellflower is native to the Carpathian Mountains of central Europe.

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole, with the top of the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year.
