Plant Type: Perennials

A genetically compact variety that produces an abundance of lavender-blue flowers. Like other peach-leafed bellflower cultivars, the leaves are long and narrow, resembling those of the peach tree. This dwarf cultivar reaches 16 to 20 inches when in bloom and produces multiple flowering branches in the late spring and into the summer. One of the most notable attributes of 'Takion Blue' is that its flowers are held facing up and out — while many varieties' are dangling or facing down — which reveals their richly colored 2- to 21/2-inch wide blooms.
