Tips On Growing Campanula (Bluebells)
Campanula (Bluebells) is a large genus of primarily Old World species known for their showy blue flowers.
Preferred growing conditions:
- Plant in most any soil including clay with full sun to partial shade conditions.
- Mulch with most common mulch materials. Mulching not needed in Eastern US.
- Keep regularly watered and don't let them get too dry.
- Fertilize lightly in fall with Yum Yum Mix/compost blend.
- Deadhead to prolong blooming. Leave some seeds to ripen to encourage plants to re-seed themselves.
- Cut back hard to just above the ground in mid-spring.

Q & A
Suggested Companion Plants:
USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
