In forum: Campanula glomerata 'Alba'

Thank you for your answer, Kathy C. 'Invasive' sounds attractive at the moment, as I would love to mature my garden quickly. Does it spread in its own location, or does it pop up in other parts of the garden as well?
Will Campanula Glomerata Alba come true from seed, or is there a chance of change in colour?

Re: Selfseed?

Hi, Adele,
It's all a matter of preference but it is recommended to shear back after flowering so you get a second flush of flowering rather than seed production. Also, Campanula glomerata 'Alba' , when grown in ideal conditions, can self-seed freely, becoming rather weedy and invasive (again, this is a matter of opinion amongst gardeners).

Question from Adele Kløve

In forum: Campanula glomerata 'Alba'

Why shouldn´t Campanula Glomerata Alba selfseed, and why is this not a recommended propagation method?

Eating my campanula glomerata superba

Question from SunshineNat

In forum: Campanula glomerata 'Superba'

Something has been chewing the leaves down to the stems, removing all the leaves rather than leaving bites. There are no trails (slug/snails), organic slug pellets have made no difference and they do not seem diseased. Is it possible deer have been munching?

Soil pH - putting new plants in

Question from Vicki

In forum: General

I'm a complete novice, planning a new garden from scratch.

I've bought all my plants already but am slightly concerned that half a dozen are listed as alkaline-loving whereas I suspect my soil is acid (very soft water area).

Will this be a problem or will the plants just not perform as well as they could? Is there a solution that works?

The plants are:
Campanula Glomerata Emerald
Ceanothus Dentata Californian Lilac
Hebe Addenda Anna
Hellebore Harvington Red
Hibiscus Syriacus Pink Giant
Iris Germanica

My Campanula Glomerata Suberba all appear to be dead

Question from angela

In forum: Campanula glomerata 'Superba'

I planted some Campanulas this summer and was really disappointed to find after a few weeks of hot weather they all shrivelled up. However there are still a few little flowers left, right at the bottom of the plants.Can any advise me on what to do next please as am new to gardening and have read I should cut them back? If so, by how much?

Sort order for plants in database?

Question from Kevin Pfeiffer

In forum: Polygonum baldschuanicum

I've not been able to figure out the sort order for the results when I look up a plant in the database. Is there one? Not having things in some sort of alphabetical order (common name, botanic name, or something) makes it much more difficult to find things -- one doesn't know whether to stop after page one or keep looking.. through all 15 pages (in some cases).

For example, searching for 'campanula', I get (in this order):
White clustered bellflower (Campanula glomerata 'Alba')
Adriatic bellflower 'Dickson's Gold' (Campanula garganica 'Dickson's Gold' )
Tussock bellflower 'White Clips' (Campanula carpatica f. alba 'Weisse Clips')

Lest you begin to think that these are reverse sorted by botanical name, the next entry is:
Wall bellflower (Campanula portenschlagiana)

Now, let's say I want to know whether there is another C. carpatica (I'm looking for one with blue flowers) -- I'd have to scan through all six pages, wouldn't I? (Multiple search terms don't seem to work.)

Campanula glomerata

Comment from Miriam Mesa-Villalba

In forum: Campanula glomerata

When grown in the garden without competition from grasses, this short perennial can become a quite stunning plant with its clusters of deep purple bells. Grow it in a sunny position such as a flower border or rockery in a light, lime-rich soil where it will attract bees for its nectar and pollen.
