The Bell flower is a plant for a rock garden. These plants grow covering the whole land at their disposal. The Bell flower is small in size and 30 cm in height; in the summer it assumes a purple colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.

The Bell flower should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. The Bell flower should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.These plants lose the aerial part during the coldest months of the year. As spring begins, stems and leaves quickly start to reproduce.
Watering Bell flower
Water rarely, about once every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. Perennial plants are subject to some months of vegetational rest. During these months it isn't necessary to water them.
