Old Fashioned

You just don't see Canterbury Bells anymore. At least I don't. This beautiful specimen of Canterbury Bells, Campanula medium was growing at one of my new jobs near Los Angeles. CB is a biennial meaning it takes 2 years to flower from seed. It prefers a bit of shade in our hot inland climate and blooms late spring into summer to about 2 feet tall. The flower stalk usually needs to be staked as winds and the weight of sprinklers on the flowers make them fall. They come in lavender, pink, white and purple. It is so pretty!
