Meet Campanula persicifolia 'Chettle Charm'
It is unique in that its flowers bloom white and
turn blue with age.
These are starting to turn blue on its picotee edged
white bells now. You get the best of two worlds
with this flower white and then blue blooms.
It is a fast spreading perennial that grows to about
30 inches tall and is good in zones 4-9.
I dead head them and they continue getting
new blooms along its stems.
When I bought them the picture showed them as
changing to an aqua blue color but in my soil
they turn a darker blue or purple along the edges.
I also have the white ' grandiforus alba' Bellflowers
spreading around the outer edges of my shady
flower beds to add some light into the shade and
of course they stand out as a night garden bed.
The hummingbirds love the bell shaped flowers.
Echinacea purpurea ' Razzmatazz' is also starting to
bloom and she smells so sweet. The butterflies
just love it.
I love this coneflower because of its bloom is crammed
with petals that keep unfolding into a pompom shaped
flower. It is a wonderful flower for cutting and keeps
well in arrangements for about two weeks.
Happy Gardening Everyone and Have a Wonderful
