Canterbury Bells Cup and Saucer Mix Campanula Medium is a hardy, attractive biennial flowering plant. Canterbury Bells seeds are a good way to establish this flowering bellflower mix that produces bell-shaped flowers with a flat base in various shades of blue, pink and white. Campanula Medium is the biennial, so the plant produces foliage the first year and flowers the second year blooming from spring to early summer.
Canterbury Bells Cup and Saucer Mix makes an excellent backdrop for shorter annuals and perennials in a cottage garden, and Canterbury Bells are often planted in flower beds, borders, and cutting gardens. This bellflower can be treated as an annual if Campanula Medium seeds started indoors in February. As a cut flower Canterbury Bells have a very long vase life, and this bellflower can last for weeks if water is changed daily.
