The unusual look of the Pink Octopus Bellflower is a big part of the appeal of this beautiful plant. The Campanula has nodding buds that open to reveal lantern-like flowers in a lovely soft-pink hue. The flowers bloom from early to mid-summer and feature long, thin petals that dramatically open. This plant is a prolific bloomer for a stunning floral display. Deeply serrated green foliage is semi-evergreen and will stay in place year-round in warmer regions.
Plant in beds, borders, containers, or use as a groundcover. The Pink Octopus Bellflower will grow 10 to 15 inches tall, so it can be used underneath larger plants to fill in empty spaces. Trim the striking flowers to use in arrangements. Hummingbirds are drawn to the fragrant flowers, but this plant is deer-resistant. The Pink Octopus Bellflower grows as a perennial in USDA zones 5 through 8.
Pink Octopus Bellflower Care
Bellflower needs full to partial sun, although this plant prefers afternoon shade in warm areas. Average soil that is alkaline to neutral with medium moisture, but good drainage is best. This plant has average water needs, so give it a drink when the top few inches of soil dry out. Established plants are drought-tolerant but keep up with routine watering to ensure abundant blooms.
Spread a layer of organic mulch around the plant in the spring to support new growth. Give this plant a rejuvenating trim after the flowers fade to encourage a second flush of blooms.
Pink Octopus Bellflower Spacing
This spreading perennial will reach 10 to 15 inches tall and 15 to 18 inches wide. Space plants 18 inches apart when used in a bed or include 1 to 2 plants in a 12-inch container.
