Campanula ‘Birch Hybrid’ (dwarf bellflower) is low growing evergreen campanula growing to only 18cm (6″) high.
Sometime referred to as the ‘Siberian Bellflower’ this is a plant that blooms profusely, and for such a small plant it offers value for money. The flowers are such a clear crisp lilac blue, small bells dancing on top of short stems, held above the foliage.
