Tall branching stems bearing clusters of violet-blue open bell-shaped flowers appear from July to September among toothed mid-green leaves. This tall bellflower is a cottage-garden classic and is perfect towards the back of a mixed or herbaceous border. It's a happy companion for old roses, self-seeds freely and the flower colour is retained best in partial shade.

  • Garden care: Protect the tender foliage from slugs and deadhead regularly to prolong flowering. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted compost around the base of the plant in spring. Stake with bamboo canes or brushwood in spring before the flowers appear.
