Campanula ‘Samantha’ is a dwarf carpatica hybrid campanula with a compact habit and slow rate of growth. Falling into the group of alpine campanulas, it forms a low mat of deep green foliage, from which short sprays of scented, purple flowers appear from spring to autumn. It’s ideal for growing at the front of a border or rock garden, and makes a fine choice for a container display.
