Three adaptable alpine Campanulas chosen by plant hunter Lark Hanham

Described as a “diverse and charming group” by Sue Wooster – National Collection Holder of Alpine Campanulas and RHS Gold Medallist – there are many reasons why Campanulas are so well-regarded. Originally native to mountainous regions of southern Europe, they’re extremely hardy, adaptable and rewarding perennials to grow. Irresistible to pollinators, they offer lots of long-lived colour above compact, drought-tolerant cushions of evergreen foliage.

Discovered in a garden in Britain in 1970, ‘Elizabeth Oliver’ is acclaimed for its opulent beauty and its commendable garden performance. Its neat, compact habit is coated in ruffled and doubled baby-blue bells through June and July. Plant in full view at the front of a semi-shaded border where it will slowly spread by rhizomes and create well-behaved green mats.

Trillium pussilum

Why

If you’re lucky, one day you will witness the subtle, understated beauty of the rare dwarf wakerobin.  Its poised, narrow, collar-like leaves are marbled with an opulent purple hue, which provides the perfect backdrop to the proud, upward-facing, intricately rippled blooms in spring.

Where

Growing to only 25cm tall, plant in drifts of threes and fives in shade and situate somewhere you can enjoy the white reflexed blooms. Watch as they slowly transform into a dusky rose.

How

Over time, this scarce little Trillium will create handsome clumps of erect foliage and will happily colonise in moist, rich, leafy soils. Divide clumps in September before frosts and transplant with extra helpings of leaf mould.

Works well with…

Plant with Tiarellas, Dicentras, Fritillarias and perennial Polyanthus Dark Rosaleen for the ultimate spring showdown. Height and spread 25cm.
