Campanula care

Campanula care


With their classic or cheerful appearance, the Campanulas from Addenda® are perhaps the most rewarding plants you can think of. Because of the variations and colours they fit in different interior styles. Also because they immediately feel at home in various pots. From subtle pastel ceramics to solid willow baskets and antique zinc buckets. Make no mistake about that delicate and elegant look, Campanula is a strong, easy home plant that creates endless new flowers.

Campanula is a well-known garden bloomer that also does well indoors and flowers richly with characteristic flowers that have a high ornamental value. Depending on the species, the plant offers white, pink, lilac or purple bells with five petals. The flowers can be attached to hanging tendrils, but they can also bloom on top of the plant. The green consists of fresh green blades or is soft and herbaceous. The best known houseplant of the company is probably the Star of Bethlehem, a real room classic.


The Campanula thrives best in a place in the semi-shade. The plant likes enough light, but no direct sunlight. Direct sunlight can damage the leaves and thus reduce the ornamental value. For example, place the plant a few meters from a window on the west or east, a little further in front of a window on the south and it can do well in front of a window on the north.

 It is recommended to water the soil once every 2 days in the summer and keep it moist. Make sure that there is no layer of water at the bottom of the pot, because this will cause root rot. In the summer months you can choose to give some extra plant nutrition. Do this once a month and never give more than the dosage, preferably a little less. Furthermore, the Campanula is a hardy plant and it could also go outside.


Campanula belong to the bell family and are most common around the Mediterranean and Caucasian Mountains.


If the Campanula suffers from vermin, it is important to control it as soon as possible using a biological or, if desired, a chemical pesticide.
