Bellflower Willow Peach-Leaved Blue Campanula Persicifolia is an upright growing perennial that can be grown from bellflower seeds. Commonly called Willow Bell or Peach-Leaf Bellflower, this remarkable plant produces large, outward facing, bell-to-cup-shaped, porcelain, lavender blue flowers on a top of long, stiff stems. Bellflowers are often considered early season bloomers, and Willow Bell blooms from spring to mid summer attracting hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees.
Bellflower Willow Peach-Leaved Blue is one of the most popular campanulas for cottage gardens, cutting gardens, borders, and mass planting in naturalized areas. Campanula Persicifolia seeds can be started outdoors in a cold frame, and the established Bellflower appreciate some afternoon shade in hot summer climates requiring regular and even moisture. The flowers of Peach-Leaf Bellflower are held above the mound of leaves on tall, straight stems, making them ideal cut flowers.
