Plant of the Week: Campanula ‘Blue Orb’-This tidy, compact cultivar (up to twelve inches in height and width) forms a low, globe-shaped mound of deep green foliage and sports bold, open flowers with white eyes and dreamy azure petals. These blooms arise all summer, coming on perpetually: whenever one flower starts to fade, a new one opens to take its place. If you remove the faded flowers it will encourage more blooming! Perfect within rock gardens, as a container specimen, front-of-the-border plant, or decorative groundcover, this Bellflower boasts a versatile non-agressive habit. This easy-going bellflower prefers moist and well-drained soil, though it will tolerate acid or lime, sand or clay. Hardy to 10F. Campanula ‘Blue Orb’ is available this week in four inch and one gallon containers.
