Campanula Plant Care

Campanula punctata likes well-drained soil in sun to part shade. In warmer climates where nighttime temps remain above 70 degrees, it requires some shade from the hot afternoon sun. Removing spent flowers stalks will encourage rebloom and discourage seeding (if not wanted). Leave any new fall foliage at the base to overwinter. Can divide every 3-4 years in the spring.
