Ella's Garden Plants from A to Z: Adenophora bulleyana, Lady Bells

Common Name: Lady Bells

Family: Campanulacea

Genus: Adenophora

Species: bulleyana

Characteristics of Plant
A flowering perennial that sends up many stalks of nodding blooms that are a cambridge-blue in color.

Germination rate is low for this plant generally, so I would plant extra seeds. Best germination can be achieved by starting indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost. Surface sow at temps of 50-60F. Make sure the soil stays well drained as this plant does not particularly like wet feet.

This plant also benefits from some shade in zones with high heat temps.

Shop seed from these EG member's stores.
