Campanulas are loved for their bell-like, usually blue flowers and long flowering season. Traditionally used in cottage garden schemes, campanulas look particularly lovely when grown under shrub roses. Campanula flowers are extremely attractive to bees and other pollinators.
Campanula pyramidalis is a superb and beautiful campanula, forming a large basal cluster of leaves from which pyramidal, leafy spikes emerge in summer, carrying pale blue, bell-shaped flowers. For best results grow in moist, neutral to alkaline soil in sun to partial shade.
Campanula pyramidalis is a short-lived perennial and is therefore best treated as a biennial. Raise new plants from seed each year.

excellent plant, performs every year and has done for the past ten. It has become huge now though. Perfect for the back of a bed, also grows in part sun equally as good as full sun
I planted this from seed 3 years ago and because I had no space they spent a year in pots where they did very little. Planted out last summer in a border with full sun and it has just come into flower this year(early August) It looks great is a really bight blue self supporting spires about 1 1/2 - 2 metres tall.
