Milky Bellflower Overview
Campanula lactiflora - Milky Bellflower or Milk-White Bellflower as it's also known - is an upright perennial with conical panicles in shades of white to purple, bell-shaped flowers that are borne on strongly branched stems. Flowering from summer to early autumn, Campanula lactiflora may need staking in exposed positions, and it needs a fertile, moist but well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil. It is happy in sun or partial shade but the delicate flower colour is best preserved in partial shade. It may require staking in exposed positions. Campanula lactiflora is good for attracting pollinators.
