Phyteuma scheuchzeri-Horned Rampion

Propagating Phyteuma or Horned Rampion, a strange and often neglected perennial, can be done in the spring by digging up the plant and dividing the crown then transplanting rooted divisions. It blooms from June-July and they resemble the Sputnik satellite, although a close relative of the Bellflower, which are a deep blue. It is evergreen to Zone 6, prefers either full sun or partial shade and reaches a height of 8"-12" and as with most perennials needs a well drained soil.
