Information

The Campanula genus consists of about 250 species, mostly long- lived perennials. The flowers are bell shaped, hence, the Latin name Campanula, meaning 'little bell'. Propagated by seeds, the Champion series is the known commercial variety.

The known Champion series offered by Ball, is a fast finishing, high yielding series that produces delicate looking , yet very strong bell shape heads blooms. The flower colors in the 'Champion' series are bright and solid purple, blue, lavender, pure white, deep pink and light pink. Shipping should take place during the bud stage. Taking this into consideration there will be no problem and a great Campanula spike will be enjoyed. Because the arrangement of the Campanula flower is not always the same in the stems, it can be used in different ways in the flower arrangements.
