Rainy Side Notes
In spring and early summer, when a carpet of this hybrid is in a sea of bloom, it can make me weak in the knees. Although it likes to send runners out around the garden, it is worth growing and giving it room to roam, just for its vivid blue flowers. C. ‘Resholt Variety’ has the best blue of all the Campanula portenschlagiana and its hybrids. This plant may be deer resistant.
