The harebell is one of the most delicate bellflowers. From a basal rosette of round leaves, it grows to about 40-50 cm tall, forming a tight clump with thin flowering stems bearing clusters of blue bellflowers which tremble at the slightest breeze. It flowers from June to August. It has a great plasticity and adapts very well to almost any situation, however, it flowers best when kept on a ‘diet’. Particularly suited for a rock garden, or front of the sunny border, where it can be enjoyed when it swaths gently in the wind.
Germination: can be sown in the fall or spring, after a period of cold-moist stratification. Seeds are very fine and need to be sown very superficial because they require light to germinate. If sown in pots/flats, water from the bottom (always recommended); if sown outdoors, cover the area with a light cloth until you see that germination started.
