Welcome to my website. This website handles the overflow from 'Growing Ornamental Plants'. Both sites show how I select and grow ornamental plants which can cope with extremely hot and dry conditions in summer, and I show how I use water saving methods to achieve this.............John Ashworth 26th December 2015.

An evergreen perennial, this plant stops growing after flowering in late spring and resumes strong growth in autumn.
In winter and spring it flowers profusely carrying lots of small blue/mauve bell shaped flowers.
The campanula variety I grow looks great inhabiting the crevices in a rockery, but looks just as good as a ground cover in a raised garden bed.
It is extremely hardy and grows well in full sun, however it also grows well in shade.
I grow some of mine under a large apricot tree where it is protected from intense summer sun, but gets good light in winter.
I prune the plant back by half after flowering to promote new growth in autumn.
