SOLVED: Help ID my mis-labeled plant?

Newark, OH(Zone 5b)

I bought many seedling perennials last spring and two of the 4-packs were labelled as campanula/peachleaf bellflowers...The leaves are totally different on them.

So, will the Actual Peachleaf Bellflower please stand up? LOL! I don't think this is it...The one I am trying to ID is on the right, not the delphinium also pictured. The flower spikes you see in this pic are just beginning to form here. Now they're tall, about 30" tall, with the spikey leaves all around, with buds at the top. Help?

That looks like the peachleaf bellflower to me. They first start out as a rosette and the leaves are more round. Then as it starts to mature and flower the leaves grow narrow and lance shaped. What do the other seedlings look like? Maybe that batch is just a little behind these?

I agree it does look like a peach leaf bellflower. How on earth it ever got its common name I'll never know.

Uh, oh. Then I'll have to post the *other* peachleaf bellflower for y'all to ID!! LOL!

Definitely a Peachleaved bellflower, campanula persicifolia.
The leaves look like peach tree leaves.
