Cultivation

Seed of Campanula myrtifolia was brought back by the writer in 1949, and plants raised at Enfield by the late G.H. Berry. The plant figured was grown in N. London by Mrs. Margaret Earle (Mr Berry’s daughter) where it has flourished in pots in an unheated alpine house. It is said to be completely cold-hardy, flowers vigorously, and can be propagated by seed and cuttings 1).
