HOW TO GROW

Sowing: This plant has the unique ability to be either an annual or a biennial, depending on the time it is planted. For annual plants direct sow in late fall, planting the seeds on the surface of the soil. For biennials, mix the seed with moist sand and store it in the refrigerator for 30 days before planting in early spring. Thin or transplant the seedlings.

Growing: This plant adapts well to sand or clay, and grows best in partial shade and rather moist soil. It needs fairly moist soil, especially when becoming established; this plant has poor tolerance of drought. In its first stage of growth this plant will consist of a low cluster of leaves, followed by the appearance of the tall flowering stalk. Though this plant will self-seed, it spreads very slowly. It attracts hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees.

Harvesting: For fresh flowers, cut the stems just when they have begun to bloom. Place them in water immediately.

Seed Saving: Since the tiny seed pods on the stalk will ripen at different times, the seed will need to be harvested over period of time. Shake the entire plant over a container to remove the seed that has ripened, repeating the process every few days until all the seed on the stalk has ripened. Store the cleaned seed in a cool, dry place.

DESCRIPTION

Though most wildflowers in the Campanula family come from the United Kingdom or the Mediterranean region, Tall Bellflower is an American native. Noted horticulturist Carl Linnaeus first recorded this species in 1753. Tall Bellflower distinguishes itself from other members of this family by its flowers that open fully rather than forming a bell shape. From the Latin, “Campanula” means “little bell,” while “americana” refers to the place of the plant’s first identification. In the wild, these lovely purple spikes grow in woodland areas or moist fields.
