One of the tallest bellflowers, this attractive herbaceous perennial is native from Turkey to the Caucasus Mountains.
In early summer it bears conical panicles of bell-shaped flowers atop tall upright stems lined with oval leaves. These blooms in white, pink, violet-blue, rose colors.
Regular deadheading will encourage continued bloom.
Milky bellflower grows best in full to partial sun and moist, rich, well drained soil. It often self sows and may require staking—particularly if planted in partial sun. This plant doesn't tolerate root disturbance during the active growing season. This old-fashioned perennial is at home in cottage gardens and mixed borders.
