Although it's easier to establish Tussock Bellflower in peat pots, we recommend choosing a calm day to sow these seeds directly outdoors. Choose a spot that you want to cover, removing all unwanted plant life from the sowing area. Scatter the tiny seeds directly to the surface of the soil, allowing them to receive direct sunlight. Do not cover the seeds as they require light to properly germinate.
Place your Tussock Bellflower in an area that receives full sunlight in cooler climates and partial shade in warmer climates. Keep temperatures at around 65F to 75F and provide them with a sandy, chalky loam. To increase drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to areas containing hard, compact soil. Water daily with a mist setting so that the seeds are not disturbed when watered.
Your seeds will begin to germinate within 7 to 14 days after sowing. The plants will reach a mature height of around 8 to 18 inches tall and 8 to 12 inches wide. The plants can be spaced about 8 to 12 inches apart from one another. Tussock Bellflower produces mounds of attractive, violet colored flowers in the form of a groundcover.
