In the US, most plants and seed sold and traded as Adenophora are actually the weedy, invasive Campanula rapunculoides.

That makes it impossible to know whether the reviews here are about this Adenophora or the Campanula.

Let the buyer (and trader) beware!

Medium 2' - Plant 12" apart. zone 4-8 - Flowers all summer. Starts the spring with marbled red and gold foliage turning green and followed by long, nodding soft blue flowers on erect stems.

Adenophoras produce many spikes of colorful bells in summer. They are prolific spreaders. Deadheading will prevent seeding, and a barrier will help with running if spread is not wanted.
