Campanula ‘Pink Octopus’

Japanese lantern buds open to striking pink, octopus-like flowers. Over 50 blooms flutter down from the nicely upright flowering branches above strong, deeply cut foliage. Unique and interesting! Long bloom time and easy to grow. This spreader does very well in the South. Tolerant of most soils. Jimmy Turner, while at the Dallas Arboretum recommended this plant for green roofs. Vigorous!

An oddly exotic, interesting plant in the border or a container. Grows well in the south. Jimmy Turner from the Dallas Arboretum recommended this for green roofs. Did well at the Dallas Arboretum in their Perennials for Purgatory trials.
