While cleaning out one of the flower beds I discovered a surprise flower blooming in one of the flowerbeds.
In the corner bed I have Purple Clustered Bellflowers, campanula glomerata, growing that blooms in June. They reach between 2 to 2 1/2 feet tall and are hardy in zones 4 to 8. The blooms do not last for a very long period but they are pretty while in bloom. I have them mixed in with Snow Drift white achillea.
These campanula’s have grown now for many years in this bed and tend to spread and reseed there even in the hard clay soil.
While cleaning this bed I spotted a white flower blooming there that I had not planted. Upon closer examination to get the identity of what this flower may be I was thrilled and surprised to see that it was a white Clustered Bellflower blooming.
It will be nice having this new surprise white clustered bellflower blooming in amongst the Purple ones.
So now I have a free Campanula glomerata alba White Clustered Bellflower growing in the bed.
Our plants do give us some sweet surprises sometimes.
