General Description

Peachleaved bellflower is a rhizomatous perennial grown for its large, double white flowers which bloom in early and mid summer. The flowers emerge on strong stems from a rosette of thick, dark green, lance-shaped leaves, thought to resemble peach leaves. This plant is native to Russia, Asia and Eastern Europe where it thrives in average soil and full sun.

Deadheading will induce plants to rebloom in late summer, but fewer flowers are produced the second time around. This bellflower prefers sites with full to partial sun and well-drained, acidic soil. It is well-suited to perennial borders and old-fashioned cottage gardens.
