General Description

Clustered bellflower is a medium-sized, vigorously spreading herbaceous perennial native to Europe and Asia. The cultivar 'Joan Elliott' bears dense spikes of deep violet, up-facing, bell-shaped flowers in late spring and early summer atop stiff stems set with large oval leaves.

This bellflower prefers full sun to part shade and well drained soil. It makes a nice if somewhat aggressive addition to mixed borders and meadow plantings. Deadhead to encourage rebloom.
