From Christian Kress of Austria's Sarastro Nursery comes this superb bellflower hybrid between two heat-loving species (Campanula punctata x Campanula trachelium). The clumping habit, compared to the thuggish Campanula punctata, makes Campanula 'Sarastro' a far better choice for most home gardens. Starting in early May (NC), the clumps of Campanula 'Sarastro' are topped with 18" flower spikes of large, dark purple, pendent bells...simply a fantastic perennial in a wide range of climates!
