Lots of bright white nodding bellflowers on bushy plants, late spring to early summer. We've found that they are hard to get established in our garden, but once they're happy, they reward us with robust performance.

|Karen Mickleson||Jul 09, 2005||Just a note of appreciation. I came in to research this plant as I have 3 of them which I've fed w/bloom, and it looks like they're just not interested in blooming yet. Your note that they take awhile to get established was just what I needed to hear! Thanks.
- Seed from '00 AHS exchange. Baggy 35F (5w) - 70F (80%G, starting 1d)
- Same seed as above. Pot outside in February. Lots of germination noted by mid-April, still small by planting-out time in late May
- Seed from '04 garden. Baggy 65F (38%G, 9-15d)
The treatment without any cold has lowest germination percentage, but is easiest. Since seed is not difficult to collect, I don't mind the lower yield.
