|'Turbinata' produces shimmery pale periwinkle-blue flowers, one flower per stem. C. carpatica produces many variants, but all the cultivars are low-growing, rarely more than eight to twelve inches in height, and usually lower. All the cultivars are clump or mat forming, putting forth dentated leaves, oval or heart-shaped and sending up stems of tubular, upturned, star-shaped flowers in shades from deep violet through the blues to white.
Vast group of plants in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Handsome blooms, typically bell- shaped, blue flower from spring to fall. Leaves at base of plant are larger and broader than stem leaves. Uses for campanulas are as diverse as the varieties available. Showcase smaller varieties where they may be appreciated - in rock niches, close to a path. Trailing species make great ground covers and hanging baskets. Upright species should be planted in sweeping drifts in the perennial border or naturalized under trees. These spring to fall flowering beauties prefer rich, well drained soil and full to partial sun.
