How to GrowCampanula can grow from seed or from rhizomes. The tiny seeds should go in prepared soil in spring after all danger of frost has passed. Make sure to keep seedlings moderately moist when caring for bellflowers. To plant rhizomes, sever them from the parent plant at a root node and bury the roots in the soil.
Bellflowers perform best in USDA plant hardiness zones 4 and up but may grow in zone 3 with some protection. They are cold hardy plants that are useful specimens in areas with hard winters. They require full sun for best flower production, and well-drained soil with moderate moisture. Once established, bellflower plants can tolerate periods of drought. Soil conditions for growing bellflowers can be any pH range, including highly acidic.
Caring for bellflowers does not require any expertise. As with most perennials, they are hardy plants that tolerate quite a lot of extreme weather and arid conditions. Bellflower care includes deadheading to promote more blooms and a longer lasting display. You can also cut it down to the ground in late winter to early spring to rejuvenate the plant. Also, some varieties of bellflower have invasive potential and seed heads need to be removed before they spread.
