Botanical Name

Plant Common Name

Peachleaf Bellflower, Takion Mix Peachleafed Bellflower

General Description

‘Takion Mix’ is a compact strain of peachleaf bellflower, a rhizomatous perennial native to Russia, Asia and Europe. Attaining a mature size half that of the species, its slender, branched stems bear many large, nodding bell-shaped flowers in shades of lavender-blue to white. They are airily displayed throughout the summer atop rosettes of willowy, lance-shaped foliage.

Peachleaf bellflower prefers full sun to part shade and fertile, moist, well-drained soil. This perennial is a classic choice for cottage gardens and the foreground of mixed borders, and also makes a fine container subject.
