About Campanula Persicifolia Blue
Campanula Persicifolia Blue is a traditional old cottage garden flower with stems covered in blue cup flowers. They mix in so well with the foxglove, hollyhocks, and delphiniums. The foliage stays low and neat. Campanula Persicifolia Blue is a carefree plant in my garden. I have them in a partial shade area of my garden but they can handle a sunny spot as well. Pinch off old flower heads and these plants just keep blooming. The University of Illinois puts Campanula on its list of deer resistant plants.

Planting and Growing Campanula
Make sure your Campanula “harden off” to cool nights and windy conditions before planting. This requires leaving them outside in a protected area for a few days otherwise, they may wilt after planting. Choose an area in part shade or sun. Prepare your planting hole by turning the soil at least a shovel size deep and wide and be sure the hole is filled with plenty of organic matter for best results. Remove your plant from its pack and gently loosen the root ball. Plant deep enough to cover the top of the root ball. Press down firmly on the soil and then water it in. Consider fertilizing once or twice a season. You can mulch if you like but not too close to the plant to avoid rot. Clip spent blooms for a continuous flush of flowers!
