CAMPANULA carpatica 'White Uniform'

Image of Campanula carpatica 'White Uniform'

James H. Schutte

Family

Campanulaceae

Botanical Name

CAMPANULA carpatica 'White Uniform'

Plant Common Name

Carpathian Bellflower, Carpathian Harebell, White Uniform Bellflower

General Description

‘White Uniform’ lends a crisp look to the garden with its abundance of starry, bowl-shaped, pure white flowers. The snowy, upfacing blossoms are displayed atop compact, tight-growing mounds of small, toothed, bright green foliage. Attractive to bees and butterflies, they bloom over an extra long period from late spring through summer.

This cultivar is derived from Carpathian bellflower, a species native to the Carpathian mountains of central Europe. It requires full to part sun and moist but well-drained soil of average fertility. An excellent choice for rock gardens or the front of mixed borders, it also looks lovely tumbling from crevices in low, stone retaining walls.
