Bell peach-leaved, nettle-leaved, round-leaved and other types

Bells, despite all their external attractiveness, are highly discouraged to plant in flower beds and flower beds due to their overly "aggressive" behavior and tendency to self-seeding. But the peach-leaved bell or any of its other varieties will perfectly decorate the far corners of the site, making the under-fence "jungle" very picturesque.

Peach bellflower can grow in rather unfavorable conditions: on lawns and slopes with dry soil, poor in nutrients. This plant can be seen from afar thanks to its large bells, which are painted in light lilac shades and crowned with thin knee-high stems (in some cases, even to the waist). The nettle bellflower is distinguished, first of all, by a very violent and practically uncontrolled self-seeding. Its peak in appearance is at the beginning of flowering, when huge blue-violet flowers bloom on long stems. But they fade very quickly, and after flowering, it is advisable to cut the stems shorter.

But the round-leaved bell will delight the eye with a multitude of delicate bluish flowers blooming one after another, from the very beginning of summer to late autumn. However, not all bells are unpretentious to growing conditions. So, a two-year-old spreading variety grows well and pleases with abundant flowering only in conditions of sufficient lighting and regular moderate watering. At the same time, these flowers do not differ in a very spectacular appearance and will look really beautiful only in group plantings, and better - next to other field plants, for example, tar and daisy.
