Generally called 'Southern harebell'.

The pendulous pale blue-violet flowers are very small individually but produced in masses. Great hanging down over a retaining wall. Very fine texture.

Blooms in late summer into fall.

Prefers sandy acid soils and needs excellent drainage.

Native to the southern Appalachians.
