Design Tips

Harebell is very short and looks great when planted in a mass on a slope. It spreads by seed but won’t smother other flowers and grasses. The very long flowering period adds a dashes of blue throughout the summer up until frost. Looks great with other low-growing yellow, pink, and orange flowers.
