I don't think it is. It looks like some sort of bellflower to me. Campanula glomerata - maybe?

lol Mings, I think what she meant was that they are known to spread alot. As for your Love in a Puff...I just planted some seeds!! am I asking for trouble by planting them?? I have them planted next to a copper trellis so hopefully they will stay in one spot!

They will stay in one spot,. for 1 year. lolol...then. they are in the grass and in the entire garden. It is one wave of blue...So pretty. Atleast I THINK that is what this is. I am having trouble identifying lately. but I am 98% certain it is. See, I started with the markers too late... I missed alot by thie time I got them ~. things were done and forgotten. Have to get going on that again. Like. this week! Its always something

Most campanulas are perennial, but Campanula medium (cup & saucer, Canterbury bells) are biennial, so they would have come up last year and will bloom this year. The heart shaped leaf sure looks like campanula.

If it's a campanula, you won't be disappointed. They may have reseeded from last year..do you recall planting any?

I threw in a bunch of wild flower seeds last year, And I really do not remember this leaf blooming into anything. But. I could be way off base here. I just really can not bring it to mind. and have been going through older photos this evening. I really hope it is what you all say. It would be so nice.

You could have had bellflowers in your wildflower mix. Let us know what it becomes. I'm really getting curious now!

We still have about two feet of snow out in our yard, but it is going down in spite of the cold temps we've had lately. It's a slow spring up here. I can't wait for all that white stuff to melt away so that I can pull back the straw mulch and see what survived the winter!

Yes, Ceeads lives just down the road from me. I suggested she check out Dave's Garden, since she has so much knowledge to offer and she's interested in learning new things. She has a wonderful little place and she does mostly container gardening. I call her place Eadsville Eden! I always give her plants to grow because they do so well for her. Today I gave her a hand posting photos, so you'll see lots more of her place.

My coneflowers always come back, they seem to spread more by the roots than seeds - maybe it's because I collect most of then, Lol

Yes, mingsmimi, I try to tell all the Seward gardeners about Dave's Garden. We have to do lots of virtual gardening around here.

Azalea: I wish we could grow coneflowers successfully around here. I have a couple but they never seem to do much.

They must need a longer season than you have - mine aren't much bigger than yours though, but won't be blooming for another month or two. Same with the Black Eyed Susans.

Mine will be blooming next week if they keep up their pace.
They come up on their sometimes, but haven't in my yard. I have two clumps and they pretty much stay there and stay about the same size. They are actually in too much shade now that some trees have been planted and put on some growth on that side. This year, I hope to give them a lot more attention to see if they might want to branch out a litle.

I don't think the picture here is of a bellfolower...or not the one I have anyway. My bellflower is very tightly packed...it's not spread out like the picture you have here. Mine is a very tight clump. I'm not sure what you have here.

Campanulas are a big family. They can be six inches high or 4 feet tall, and they come in various shades of blue, lavender, pink, and white. Most are perennial, some are biennial, and a few are annuals. Wild varieties grow almost everywhere. The most common feature is the bell shaped flowers. Most every one is a beauty in its own way.
