Dalmatian bellflower photos-Campanula portenschlagiana

Bellflowers come in many varieties, some are tall plants with longer flower spikes while others are small, crawling pants with individual flowers.

Campanula portenschlagiana is a evergreen perennial plant that is found in woodlands and forested areas of Europe, parts of Asia, and the Americas.
Dalmatian bellflower, on its other name, blooms abundantly from June until late autumn, bearsing many blue, bell-shaped flowers.
The plant is only about 10 cm high and spreads out forming a beautiful ground cover of dark green, heart-shaped leaves and blue flowers.
This species of bellflower grows very quickly being easy to grow.

Campanula portenschlagiana thrives in full sun or partial shade, in well drained sandy soil and rock gardens. Thought it grows well in many conditions and climates, it tolerates extreme cold better than tropical high temperatures.

This plant is also used as wall plant, hence its other name, Campanula muralis - wall bellflower.

Hi Maia!
I hope my thumbnail image will show. My biggest prob is the word verification which can be tricky and which is the reason I had a hard time leaving comments when there is one. ;-(
