Campanula Carpatica Carpatian Bell Flower


Campanula Carpatica Carpatian Bell FlowerThis species of Bell-flower, which takes its name from its place of growth, is a native of the Carpatian Alps, and was introduced into the Royal Garden at Kew, by Professor Jacquin of Vienna.

The Campanula Carpatica flowers in June and July.

As yet it is scarce in our gardens, but deserves to be more generally known and cultivated; its flowers, in proportion to the plant, are large and shewy: like many other Alpine plants, it is well suited to decorate certain parts of rock-work, or such borders of the flower garden, as are not adapted for large plants.

It is a hardy perennial, and the Campanula Carpatica is propagated by parting its roots in autumn.
