Campanula Kent Belle ~ Bell flower

June 26, 2008

blooming campanula kent belle

This bell flower beauty is absolutely stunning in bloom! The 2 inch nodding purple bells are great as a cut flower, and make a striking statement in the garden border too. Some sources list this bellflower as a zone 5, but I have enjoyed this variety in my zone 4 gardens for a number of years. I cut my Kent Belle back after bloom and am often rewarded with a small burst of bloom again later in summer.

Growing information:

Height – 2 feet

Blooms early summer – mid summer

Grow in full sun to partial shade

Hardy zone 5-9 (does well in my zone 4 gardens)
