Campanula is Latin for ‘little bell’. This genus of plants consists of some 300 varieties of Campanula. These plants were first found in the wild in the Carpathians, the sparsely populated and densely forested mountainous area that stretches across the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Ukraine and Romania.
Schoneveld Breeding breeds two varieties of Campanula: Ambella and Adansa. In Europe these Campanula varieties are distributed by Addenda.
The Ambella’s flowers are bell-shaped. These plants are very sturdy and compact, so growers need to use relatively less growth regulator. This Campanula Portenschlagiana has abundant colourfast blooms. Even though all Campanulas are hardy, and thus make excellent outdoor plants, Ambella also thrives in a pot indoors. The flowering period is from early spring to late summer. Ambella is available in pot sizes 7 to 15 cm and in two colours: White and Lavender.
Just like Ambella, Adansa is a very strong plant. This more informal Campanula has long bloom-covered tendrils and star-shaped flowers. This Campanula Porscharskyana has strong, compact and continual abundant blooms. Its long bloom-covered tendrils make Adansa perfect for hanging baskets. The flowering period, just as for Ambella, is from early spring to late summer. Adansa is available in pot sizes 12 to 25 cm and in three colours: Purple, Pink and White.
