Going, going, gone:
CAMPANULA carpatica 'Blue Clips' and 'White Clips'
We are the first to perk up and pay attention to updates in phones, hardware, software, greenhouse tech - and especially plant genetics.
But we also have "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" tattooed inside our eyelids. We love our tried-and-true varieties, the ones that come through for us, and for you, year after year.
Which perfectly describes Campanula carpatica 'Blue Clips' and 'White Clips'. They're standards. And "standard" doesn't mean ho-hum.
Standards help us gauge the merits of promising newcomers. 'Blue Clips' and 'White Clips' are the gold standard to which other Campanula must measure up. As long-blooming border edging, you can count on them every time. But the seed company has discontinued the series.
We'll miss the Clips. It's like saying goodbye to a good friend of many years. The final batches are gone, but we anticipate a few new standards, click on the picture to see them
