Isotoma (Australian Harebell) & Laurentia (White Star of Bethlehem)

Australian Harebell and White Star of Bethlehem are small genera with annual to perennial members within the bellflower family (Campanulaceae). They are native of humus rich, slightly moist soils in open spots in subtropical woods (Laurentia) or sunny spots in open grounds (Isotoma) from India through New Zealand and Australia. All are easily grown in any humus rich, well drained soil.
Sow seeds flat on top of any rich, well drained soil in pots in spring at some 20°C. Transplant the annual Isotoma to the final spot in the open garden as soon as plants are strong enough after the last freezing nights. Grow the perennial Laurentia in pots under frostfree conditions throughout the year. In winter keep plants slightly drier at a minimum of some 15°C and a sunny spot.
