Our musical Bellflower Fairy loves to make her flower sing in the wind. This magic music can only be heard by those who believe in fairies!
Did you know that Bellflower, or Campanula, has over 500 species of flowers native to the Northern Hemisphere? Campanula comes from Latin, and means “little bell”.
Bellflower blooms between late spring and early fall, with wonderful white, pink, blue, lavender or purple bell-shaped flowers. They turn into small capsules filled with tiny seeds that spread on the ground, and give birth to new plants in the next year.
The Brothers Grimm’s tale Rapunzel took its name from Campanula rapunculus, which is known as Rapunzel-Glockenblume in German!
