The tubu­lar flow­ers of the salvia are pop­u­lar with long-tongued bees, and the open daisy-like flow­ers of the rud­beckia are par­tic­u­larly pop­u­lar feed­ing sta­tions for but­ter­flies. When the flow­ers fade, plant the rud­beckia and cam­pan­ula in the gar­den. Keep the salvia pro­tected from the worst of the win­ter weather in a porch or cold green­house, then plant it out again in spring. Flow­ers from May un­til the first frosts.
