Korean Belflower is a clump-forming perennial with edible leaves, flowers, and roots. The enchanting bell-shaped flowers range from white to pink, most with maroon speckles in their throats, and bloom for much of the summer. Bumblebees love the flowers.

Can be grown in full sun or part shade, although a bit of shade keeps the leaves tender for longer going into summer. The plants grow around two feet tall when in bloom. Prefers average to well-drained soil.

The leaves and flowers make great salad ingredients. The flowers can be used as a garnish or in cocktails. The roots are also edible.

This plant can spread, so it’s probably best to avoid planting it near special plants that it may overtake. It would likely make a great edible ground cover under trees and shrubs, however.

Growing Instructions

Seeds benefit from a short period of cold stratification. If you want to start them indoors, you can use a fridge to cold stratify. Fold seeds into damp paper towel and put in a sealed bag or container. Or sow in sterile potting mix in a sealed container. Place seeds in fridge for 2-4 weeks. Check regularly in case they sprout early. If you used paper towel, carefully transfer sprouted seeds to small pot, or plant the whole sheet of paper towel if the roots have developed already.

The easier way to start these is to let nature stratify the seeds for you. Sow the seeds in a small pot outdoors in late winter (Jan or Feb on the west coast). Cold temperatures will stratify the seeds naturally, and they will sprout when it warms up.

Once the seedlings develop true leaves, they can be pricked out into their own pots or planted in the ground.

Korean Bellflower

Stratified the seeds in fridge in wet paper towel/baggie for a few weeks, then moved it all under my grow lights and they are germinating well! I have been pricking out seeds as they germinate and surface sowing them in pots. They’re all doing well so far! Can’t wait to see them mature :)
