The Plant Store will re-open for sales the week of May 13th, 2024 for local pickup

  • Please see the Using the Plant Library  page  for some tips on how to make the most of the information here to select species for creating a healthy native plant community suited to the conditions of your site.
  • I'm currently working on shifting the store part of this site over to more complex software that will allow for filtering by multiple plant traits and making wish lists of species you would like to order, so please bear with me when it comes to announcing the exact species offerings for 2024 (there will be lots, including some species not previously offered).

Campanula rotundifolia, Bluebell of Scotland

Campanula rotundifolia

Giesecke's Bellflower

  • Average to dry soils -Happy in rock niches, especially limestone
  • Full sun to light shade
  • 12” tall, 6” to 8” spread
  • Early summer blooming, with sporadic reblooming
  • Native to Ontario, beginner friendly, open meadow and rock garden settings

New to me this year, grown from seeds from Prairie Moon Nursery 

After many botanical name iterations, these are once again officially Campanula rotundifolia according to VASCAN and are considered to be native throughout Canada.

These lovely, apparently delicate, plants don’t handle competition for space well, but can thrive in rock niches and garden areas where they aren’t overwhelmed by more rambunctious neighbours.

Please check out the Prairie Moon listing at the link above for more details.

While it rarely comes up, I do reserve the right to limit plant quantities, mostly to help ensure that as many native plant gardens as possible become a reality
