About Campanula Glomerata "Clustered Bell Flower"
I first saw Campanula Glomerata's beautiful flowers along a neighbors split rail fence and knew I had to have some in my garden. On top of each stem is a ball shaped cluster of violet bells. Campanula Glomerata adapted well in our garden and requires no care at all. The University of Illinois puts Campanula on its list of deer resistant plants.

Planting and Growing Campanula
Make sure your Campanula “harden off” to cool nights and windy conditions before planting. This requires leaving them outside in a protected area for a few days otherwise, they may wilt after planting. Choose an area in part shade or sun. Prepare your planting hole by turning the soil at least a shovel size deep and wide and be sure the hole is filled with plenty of organic matter for best results. Remove your plant from its pack and gently loosen the root ball. Plant deep enough to cover the top of the root ball. Press down firmly on the soil and then water it in. Consider fertilizing once or twice a season. You can mulch if you like but not too close to the plant to avoid rot. Clip spent blooms for a continuous flush of flowers!
