Just water during dry periods and fertilize with an all-purpose (5-10-10 or 10-10-10) garden food once in the spring and once during the mid-summer.Campanula ‘Blue Waterfall’ is a perky purple perennial that’s a popular favorite for many reasons.

My recently purchased Campanula (dark purple) appears to be very healthy, but the latest blooms are pale lavender rather than purple. I have followed instructions on lighting and watering. Is there an essential nutrient it needs to maintain its deeper color? If you recommend adding fertilizer, what kind? How much and how often? NOTE: (I noticed that, after watering the plant, the drainage water beneath the pot was tinged with purple. Is it possible to enhance the color artificially? If so, is this a common practice by suppliers? Or is it a natural phenomenon?) Campanulas (Campanula sp) are perennials that do best in full sun with well-drained soil. Once established, they are drought tolerant, but you will probably get better flowering by watering every week. Dead heading them will promote more blooms. You can cut them to the ground in late winter or early spring to rejuvenate the plants. Fertilize in the spring and again in the summer with 5-10-10 fertilizer.
