|Adenophora potaninii 'Bush Ladybells'|
7/13/2010 - Adenophora potaninii 'Bush Ladybells' have become a staple in my garden. When first planted they produced a profusion of 2′ to 3′ tall stalks of lavender blue flowers that lasted for several weeks (great for cutting). After the first display, I cut back the stalks, which were then replaced with smaller 6″ to 1′ tall shoots. So far, they have been in bloom for three straight months.
The only fault I can find with Bush Ladybells, and it is a minor one, is that the lavender hue isn’t dark enough for my taste.
