Campanula rotundifolia - Harebell

Native to much of North America’s dry grasslands and semi-shaded woods, Harebell is a delicate wildflower that only grows to be about one foot tall. Its deep, bluish-purple, bell-shaped flowers are clustered at the tips of several stems and bloom from June through to September. Although the flowers are scentless, butterflies regularly visit them. Thriving in poor dry soils, Campanula rotundifolia makes a fine addition to the rock garden.

SEED GERMINATION INFO


Indoors: Cold, moist stratification. Start at least 5 weeks before outdoor night temperatures are reliably in the 10 C (50 F) range. Place seed on the surface of a slightly moistened, sterile, soil-less growing mix. Put this in a labelled, sealed plastic bag and store in a refrigerator for one day. The next day place this in the freezer for one day. Repeat this for one week, alternating between the fridge and the freezer. After stratifying, place mixture on the surface of pots filled with growing media. Seed needs light to germinate, do not cover after planting. Keep moist but not soggy and very warm (21 C - 70 F). When seedlings are 5 cm (2 inches) tall or more, transplant into the garden spaced 30 cm (1 foot) apart.

Outdoors: Place seed on the surface of a prepared seed bed in late fall so that the seed overwinters and germinates naturally in spring.

Outdoors Alternative: In late fall through to mid-winter fill plastic pots with a slightly moistened, sterile, soil-less growing mix. Place seed on the surface of the growing mix and label the pots. Place the pots outdoors in an area where they will experience the snow and cold of winter. The seed will germinate in the pots in spring as the weather warms up. Be sure to water the pots regularly in spring and once the plants are 5 cm (2 inches) tall, transplant them into your garden.
