  • water dropWater

    Peachleaf Bellflower thrives in evenly moist soil, so it should be watered thoroughly whenever the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. This might result in watering approximately once or twice a week, depending on climate conditions and soil drainage. Use a watering can or hose to gently water the plant at soil level, avoiding wetting the foliage to prevent disease. During hot spells or periods of drought, you may need to water more frequently, paying attention to the plant's response. On average, this could mean using 1-2 gallons of water per week for an established plant in moderate conditions.

  • sunLight

    Peachleaf Bellflower performs best in full sun to partial shade conditions. Ideally, it should receive at least 6 hours of sunlight daily, which is crucial for prolific flowering. If you're planting indoors, a sunny windowsill that gets plenty of light is suitable. In hot climates, provide some afternoon shade to protect the plant from intense heat.

  • thermometerTemperature

    Peachleaf Bellflower can tolerate a range of temperatures, but it grows best when the daytime temperature is between 60 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. It is hardy and can survive winter temperatures down to -30 degrees Fahrenheit, making it suitable for many temperate regions. To ensure robust growth, avoid placing it in areas where the temperature frequently drops below the freezing point or soars above 85 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • scissorsPruning

    Peachleaf Bellflower should be pruned to remove spent flowers and encourage a second bloom. Deadheading, or cutting back the spent blooms, can be done throughout the flowering season. After the first flush of flowers, you can cut the plant back by one-half to stimulate new growth and a fresh set of blooms. The best time for more severe pruning is in late winter or early spring before new growth begins.

  • circleLife cycle

    The life of Campanula persicifolia 'Blue Bloomers', commonly known as 'Peach-leaved Bellflower', begins with seed germination, usually occurring in early spring once the soil has warmed up adequately. The seeds develop into small seedlings with a basic set of leaves that photosynthesize to fuel further growth. The plant then enters a vegetative stage, producing a rosette of slender, long leaves that are characteristic of the species, and in the right conditions, this stage may last for several months to a year. Subsequently, it goes through a flowering stage, typically in late spring to early summer, when tall stalks rise from the rosette, crowned with clusters of blue, bell-shaped flowers that attract various pollinators. After pollination, the flowers produce seed capsules that release seeds once mature, ensuring the propagation of the plant for future generations. Finally, as a perennial plant, the Peach-leaved Bellflower may go dormant in the winter, with foliage dying back to the ground, to regrow from its root system when favorable conditions return.

      Spring-Early Summer

    • The most popular method of propagating Campanula persicifolia 'Blue Bloomers', commonly known as Peachleaf Bellflower, is by division. This is best done in the spring or early fall. To propagate by division, one should carefully lift the plant out of the ground with a shovel, ensuring that you have a good amount of the root system. Using a sharp knife or spade, divide the clump into smaller sections, each with several shoots and a portion of the root system. Replant the divisions immediately, spacing them about 12 inches (approximately 30 centimeters) apart to allow room for growth. Water the new plants thoroughly to help establish them. Division helps to rejuvenate older clumps that may have become woody or less vigorous, encouraging more abundant flowering.
