The Tall bellflower, (Campanula americana) also known as the American bellflower (Campanula americana), is a beautiful and easy-to-grow wildflower native to eastern and central North America. It's a popular choice for gardens due to its attractive blue flowers and tall, elegant stature.

Here are some key characteristics of the tall bellflower:

  • Appearance: It's a biennial plant, meaning it grows for two years. In the first year, it forms a low-growing rosette of heart-shaped leaves. In the second year, it produces a tall, slender stem that can grow up to 5 feet tall. The stem is adorned with many star-shaped, blue flowers that bloom from mid to late summer.
  • Habitat: The tall bellflower prefers moist, well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade. It's commonly found in meadows, prairies, and woodland edges.
  • Growing: Tall bellflowers are relatively easy to grow from seed. They can be sown directly outdoors in the fall or winter, or started indoors in pots in early spring.
  • Care: Once established, tall bellflowers require minimal care. They are drought-tolerant and deer-resistant.
  • Uses: Tall bellflowers are a valuable addition to gardens, attracting pollinators such as butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. They also make excellent cut flowers.

Here are some additional interesting facts about the tall bellflower:

  • The tall bellflower is the only member of the Campanula genus with star-shaped flowers. Most other members of the genus have bell-shaped flowers.
  • The plant has a long history of medicinal uses by Native Americans.
  • It is a larval host plant for several butterfly species, including the eastern tiger swallowtail and the monarch butterfly.
