Dalmatian bellflower is a native perennial of elevated parts of Croatia, and can also be found along the Carpathian Mountains (from south Poland to Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania to Serbia). It forms evergreen cushions with profusion of flowers. AMBELLA® PURPLE belongs under the ADDENDA® trademark which consists of several bellflower and hebe varieties bred and grown in the Netherlands.

AMBELLA® PURPLE is an evergreen bellflower plant with deep violet blue flowers from early summer until late autumn, or even early winter if its beginning is mild. The colder the weather the darker the flowers. Leaves are broadly heart- or kidney-shaped, dark green, unevenly serrated. Plants grow quite fast and quickly form low but erect cushions.

Dalmatian bellflower prefers a sunny location, and will also live in partial shade with less flowers. It has no special soil requirements, its just has to be free draining and evenly moist. A lot of amateur gardeners consider all small bellflowers rock plants but many of them, including this one, need consistent moisture to thrive. In spring cut back the whole plant and fertilize from mid spring if you wand a profusely flowering clump. ADDENDA® bellflowers are nowadays almost predominantly sold as indoor plants but rest assured they are very hardy plants surviving at least -35°C (USDA zone 4), and in open ground perform much better than stuffed in a small pot.
