(aka: Campanula 'Blue Waterfall' USPP 13,161 expired) Got dry shade? We've got a plant for you! This Blooms of Bressingham introduction makes a weed-smothering groundcover mat of creeping stems and small dark green leaves, which are topped from May through August with small, star-shaped, lavender-blue flowers. Although Campanula poscharskyana 'Camgood' prefers slightly moist soils and part sun, we have found its tolerance for dry shade to be nothing short of amazing. Compared to the straight species, Campanula 'Camgood' makes a tidier mat with darker green leaves. In 3 years, expect a 4' wide mat of flowers attractive to hummingbirds.
Blue Waterfall campanula is a maintenance free perennial. Planted in the correct spot, there is virtually no care needed.
If you'd like to spread it around, Blue Waterfall campanula is easily divided during most of the year...as long as the ground isn't frozen.
Campanula Blue Waterfall campanula prefers to grow in a light, open shade siting in the garden. It's tolerant of a few hours of morning sun, but typically doesn't like much more in hot summer climates. In cooler summer climates, Blue Waterfall campanula actually thrives in full sun.
In terms of soil, Blue Waterfall campanula needs well-drained soils, and either clay or sandy soils are fine.
Although known horticulturally as Serbian bellflower, Campanula poscharskyana is native from Croatia through Montenegro, where it can be found growing in very rocky soils.
Although most nurseries list this cultivar as Campanula 'Blue Waterfall', the actually cultivar name is Campanula 'Camgood'. Blue Waterfall, is simply a marketing name used with the plant, but not one that has any official status.
Blue Waterfall bellflower is quite popular with bees as well as an array of other pollinators.
