Beauty of Canterbury Bells
A year ago I planted a small "Deep Blue" Canterbury Bells in a four inch pot, and gave it minimal attention. It has developed in to a huge and stunning plant with perhaps 200 large bell flowers.
I promise to take more photos today to show you more clearly in a future post how bountiful and stunning this plant is.
It is kind of wild how the Canterbury Bells clash with the orange nasturtiums, wild yet pleasing.
I would call the flowers purple rather than blue. The plant is from Annie's Annuals and Perennials and I put some in a bouquet for our Father's Day BBQ at our house. I love the rich colors and any flowers with the bell shape.
