This perennial is a delicate lavender or blue flower that can tolerate a variety of conditions. It may look delicate, but this flower can withstand temperatures of -30 degrees Fahrenheit. It will thrive in full sun or in partial sun. The soil can be dry or moist and the weather hot or cold – the Bellflower Tussock doesn’t mind. It will grow well in zones 3-8.
