Shrubs And Trees With Bell-Shaped Flowers
You can see why these flowers have “trumpet” in their name. The flowers look like a trumpet as they get wider toward the end, just like the brass instrument. These flowers thrive in hardiness zones 8-11.
This image shows a beautiful example of this flower in white, but they come in multiple colors. Their scientific name is Brugmansia and they are sometimes confused with the datura because they look similar.
An added bonus, they are very fragrant and can add a nice smell to your yard.
The Fuchsia genus is very popular among gardeners and it includes shrubs and trees. They were first discovered in the 1600s and are actually a Caribbean species of plant. Now, they are found all over the world.
The fuchsia’s hanging flowers are gorgeous and the shrub is pretty hardy. If you keep it alive through the winter, it will come back the following summer. Fuchsia Magellanica grows in hardiness zones 6-10.
White Mountain Heather
White mountain heather has beautiful white flowers with red stalks. The flowers are small but heather can cover large areas of a yard.
Its scientific name is Cassiope Mertensiana and it grows naturally in the western U.S. It thrives in places that aren’t overly warm, so you’ll find it from Alaska all the way down the West Coast. It’s best suited to hardiness zone 8.
You may have heard of bluebells, but these are yellow bells and they’re just as impressive. Their Latin name is Tecoma Stans and they grow in hardiness zone 9-11, which includes Arizona.
A dash of yellow can look amazing in your garden. Plus, they’re a bit unusual, so planting them can give a more exciting look to your landscape design. These are shrubs that bloom from spring all the way through to fall and they are pretty hardy. They can grow in a plant bed or a container.
Vines With Bell-shaped Flowers
Mandevilla is a genus that grows best in the hotter parts of America. It likes the sun and partial shade, so it could be great for planting in a gazebo or pergola in hardiness zones 9 and above.
It is in the Apocynaceae family of plants and you may hear Mandevilla described as rock trumpet, due to the trumpet shape of the inner flower.
Carolina jessamine or Gelsemium Sempervirens features another dash of yellow, this time on a vine. In fact, this is a twining vine and can look fantastic growing up a structure.
It grows in zones 7-9 and is native to the southern states, including Carolina, hence the name. However, you might hear it called many other names, including yellow jessamine, poor man’s rope, or yellow jasmine. It is also sometimes called evening trumpet flower, due to its bell-shaped flowers.
Morning glories come in many forms and the genus has lots of subspecies within the Convolvulaceae genus. They grow in hardiness zones 3 through 10.
This is a vine that is easy to grow and it can cover a huge area — so you can plant it beneath a trellis for a stunning look to your garden. Morning glory comes in a variety of colors and is low-maintenance.
Covering Bell-Shaped Flowers
Campanula is a genus of plants that includes the bluebell. Bluebells are iconic. If you plant these in your yard, your neighbors may be jealous! They grow in zones 4 and above. Campanula is derived from the Latin and translates as “little bell”. Obviously, this is because of the shape of the beautiful hanging flowers.
Foxgloves are beautiful and the genus includes herbaceous perennials, shrubs, and biennials. The speckled pattern on the inside of the flower is how you can identify a foxglove, also known as Digitalis.
Their beautiful flowers grow in clusters in a multitude of colors, including white, pink, and purple. They look amazing among other wildflowers or to give a splash of color in a garden in zone 4-10.
Lily Of The Valley
Not just a mythical name, these flowers have quite a mythical look, too! The flowers are small and can perfectly fill empty spaces in your yard. They work well in zones 2 through 9.
Be warned that the flowers on the Convallaria Majalis are very poisonous, but they smell sweet and the small white bell flowers are beautiful. They can also grow in colder parts of the world.
This is another species of beautiful white bell-shaped flower. Canterbury bells don’t droop as much as some of the other species on this list. They grow in hardiness zones 4-10 and are visually striking.
Campanula Medium, or Canterbury Bells, is actually a type of bellflower. This species grows in many different shades of violet, as well as in the pure white color.
Twinflowers are dainty and small. They often grow in pairs, hence the name, and their Latin name is Linnaea Borealis. The stalk of the flower branches off into two and a flower grows on each end, giving a gorgeous and interesting look.
You can get larger clusters of these tiny flowers, growing in pairs. They grow best in zones 7-11.
FAQs On Bell-Shaped Flowers
Yes, I have found some references that say that the yellow bellflower is edible, though not commonly used in food. It’s non-toxic and it has been used in alternative medicine, too.
There are multiple plants with white bell-shaped flowers. Fuchsias commonly have white flowers, though they can be other colors. Datura can also be white. Lily of the Valley also has clusters of small, white bell-shaped flowers.
Yes, this isn’t a myth! Bluebell leaves and the rest of the plant contain toxic glycosides. These can cause a low pulse rate, nausea, and other symptoms. Not only are they poisonous to humans, but you also need to keep your pets from ingesting them, too.
