Campanulas

This picture of Campanulas in from my front garden!

Campanula is latin for “little bell”.

Many Campanula plants have characteristic bluish purple flowers; a recommended addition to a garden seeking flowers of blue.  However, other varieties bring out pink, dark purple or even white blossoms.  All blossoms carry the characteristic bell shaped blossoms.  For diversity in appearance, there are several Campanula cultivars that also exhibit their blooms in a combined bell and star shape.   Most of the Campanula flower heads contain 5 petals, but it is not unusual for the appearance of a 7 petalled bloom to appear from time to time.
