Campanula

Campanula

Although this flower is available in a variety of forms, it's the charming cup-and-saucer flower shape that's captured gardeners' hearts. Technically a biennial (produces only foliage the first year, flowers the second, then dies), in warmer parts of the country it often will bloom in just one year. It's sometimes called bellflower, and is available in white, pink and blue, growing 2 to 4 feet tall.  Keep soil moist. Canterbury bells demand little care other than adequate moisture.  Consider fertilizing every two to three months during the growing season for best height and heaviest bloom.
