Campanula Chosen as Houseplant for April
Flower Council Holland have chosen Campanula as their Houseplant Promotion for next month.
Campanula is a plant with a fresh look, mainly in shades of blue, purple and white.
The name bellflower suggests a plant with bell-shaped flowers. This is also reflected in the scientific name: Campana means ‘bell’, and Campanula is the diminutive: little bell.
Not Just a Houseplant
There are also varieties that have star-shaped flowers, such as the Star of Bethlehem, and species with bowl-shaped and tubular flowers.
Campanula is not just used as a houseplant; it also works as a garden and patio plant when temperatures allow.
