What’s going on here? Planted purple and white bellflowers in a pot for indoor decoration and now, there’s no more white flowers. Instead, I got lavender ones. How to keep the white ones white for always?
Thank you.May 10, 2021 at 8:26 am ReplyFatzoPrivate messageGreen Thumb
I’d say it’s genetics: purple parent + white parent = lavender child! Bellflower works well as a ground cover plant because it self-reproduces and new shoots grow up as older ones die off. Since they were planted together, perhaps the white one lost its purity and now you have mixed varieties.
But I’m not an expert in bellflower reproduction :p just seems a logical explanation.
Loving the season!
