Campanula Takesimana 'Beautiful Trust' (Campanula)

Just thought I'd show you picture of this gorgeous campanula I bought at gardeners world live this year, never seen anything like it, plant is sterile so just keeps on flowering, increase stock by runners, have already managed to get three more plants from it, here's hoping it runs all over my garden.

I think not terra, you too need saving from yourself. It's like the ring in Lord Of The Rings and you're like Gollem, But you see it's my precioussss:-)

You two are so funny,lol.
Bornagain the flowers are white and it grows to around 2ft, was flowering when I got it in June, cut it down around a month ago and flowering again but much shorter this time only around 10inches, when it increases a bit more should have a few bits to spare,promise, not sure how rapidly it increases though, have managed to get three small pieces but already promised, sorry, maybe springtime.
There was another similar one think it was called pink elephant much lower growing with pink flowers, but had sold out on every stall apart from ones in display.

I haven't been to NEC for some years now. Must go next year, they may have them there, want the pink one now too. I don't have time to google them now, I'll have to wait until tomorrow:-)
