About Campbell

With his purple-blue bell-like flowers and long slender stem, Campbell here is as elegant as they come. It's no wonder his common name alludes to fairies - he's just got that kind of mystical quality, and we can almost see Thumbelina-sized fairies using his blooms as little hideaways. While we can't guarantee the above will actually happen, we do know that Campbell will add a little bit of wild meadowy whimsy to your garden. He typically blooms around June, but a chilly English climate can cause him to blossom as late as September.
