A classic of the cottage garden, this tall bellflower produces large white cup-shaped flowers on slender stems in June and July among toothed bright green leaves which it retains all year. It's an ideal plant for the back of a mixed or herbaceous border especially in partial shade. It's earlier flowering than many other varieties and provides excellent cut-flowers too.

  • Garden care: Protect the tender foliage from slugs and deadhead regularly. 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. Deadhead to prolong flowering
