- Clusters of tubular mid-blue lilac or white flowers appear on robust red-tinged stems in July and August among nettle-like, bristly mid-green leaves. In former days this nettle-leaved bellflower was widely used for treating throat infections. Thriving in partial shade it's an excellent tall plant for the edges of a woodland or wildflower garden.
- Garden Care: After flowering cut back the faded flower-stems down to the ground and compost.
