Campanula garganica 'Dickson’s Gold' is a short, clump-forming perennial that is famous for its attractive foliage. The leaves are bright gold/yellow coloured, heart shaped, and have sharply toothed margins. In late spring, an abundance of delicate, star shaped, lavender blue flowers cover the attractive gold mound of leaves. This plant is an excellent ground cover, border, or foundation species when planted in mass groupings. It is also used as a trailing perennial to cover stone walls.
Dickson's Gold Adriatic Bellflower could potentially grow more aggressively in ideal conditions, so make sure it has space around it. Grow it away from delicate, slow growing plants in your garden. This Golden Bellflower is easy to grow and thrives in a range of environments but has the best foliage colour when planted in partial shade with consistent moisture.
