Care of the plant Campanula portenschlagiana or Wall bellflower

The genus Campanula, family Campanulaceae, includes 300 species of perennial, annual and biennial plants native to the Caucasus and the Mediterranean region mostly. Some species are: Campanula portenschlagiana, Campanula medium, Campanula carpathica, Campanula pyramidalis, Campanula fragilis, Campanula glomerata, Campanula rotundifolia, Campanula rapunculoides.

Common names: Wall bellflower, Dalmatian bellflower, Adria bellflower. Scientific synonym: Campanula muralis.

They are compact perennial herbaceous plants that reach 15 cm in height and have creeping or hanging stems. The leaves are small, heart-shaped, and bright green. The blue-lilac flowers are small (2 cm in diameter) but very abundant. They can bloom during spring and summer.

They are used in pots for balconies, patios and terraces, in rockeries, on walls, in light undergrowths and on semi-shaded slopes.

Campanula portenschlagiana prefers a semi-shade exposure but can also grow in shade and in full sun (in regions with not very hot summers). They resist frost.

Water regularly throughout the year so that the substrate is always slightly damp but without ever flooding. They do not resist drought or excess watering.

They do not need fertilizers or pruning.

They can be attacked by snails, insects and fungi if water accumulates on the roots.

They are propagated by division in the fall and from seeds sown in spring in their final location or in pots.
