Campanula glomerata ‘Purple Pixie’ is a low-growing campanula, bearing clusters of purple-blue flowers on short stems. It makes excellent groundcover, and is particularly useful for edging sunny paths and filling gaps in the front of sunny borders. It has a tendency to spread quickly, and typically flowers in early summer, but if the flower stems are cut back promptly as they fade, clumps will often yield a second flush of blooms.

For best results, grow Campanula glomerata ‘Purple Pixie’ in full sun to partial shade, in moist but well-drained soil.
