Completely compact and well contained, this new bellflower is sure to impress.

Campanula 'Viking'

Viking is a sturdy, non-invasive, sterile new selection with a compact stature and clear lavender, tubular, bell-shaped blooms. Hummingbirds will hover around this fantastic new selection.

The quest for Campanula punctata like blooms on a well contained, short statured, but compact and densely blooming plant has brought us this novel beauty. The name Viking brings to mind images of strength and vigor. This new campanula has both strength and vigor as well as many superior qualities.

Viking stands at a maximum (in full bloom) of 18” tall and spreads to make a lovely and floriferous 24” clump within the first two growing seasons. Although this new selection bulks up quickly, it does not spread by rhizomes like the parent plant and the seeds are sterile, so not even the birds can spread them around. This hybrid selection will get larger in the garden, as most perennials do, but it does so by spreading underground in the most petite way. The first year in the ground, Viking almost doubled in size, but none of the new shoots were more than an inch away from the outermost shoots of the original plant. Therefore, we feel comfortable saying it will not become a thug, and we're happy to report it will provide you months of clear lavender, tubular bell flowers - perfect for attracting hummingbirds and other passers-by to your garden.

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
