How to eradicate Creeping bellflower


I have a terrible problem with creeping bellflower that was in the garden of the house I purchased 5 years ago. I’ve been digging for these 5 years and the problem is getting worse, not better. Do you have any idea how to get rid of them. Unfortunately it has creeped into the grass, all my annuals, and veggie beds. I am desperate.


Thank you for contacting the Toronto Master Gardeners about controlling/eradicating the creeping bellflower (Campanula rapunculoides) in your garden. Unfortunately, creeping bellflower tends to be a persistent headache for many gardeners. As you are probably aware, it spread by underground rhizomes as well as by seed and is very persistent. You will have to be equally persistent in controlling and getting rid of this invasive plant.

Here is the advice that we offer for getting rid of this invasive plant.

We hope that with time and effort, you can remove it from your garden.
