I raise Himalayan blue poppies for sale in Anchorage, Alaska and this spring (2004) I found 2 Serbian bellflower volunteers growing in some of my blue poppy containers. I separated them out and put them into their own pots until I could determine what they were. The plants started blooming in late June and continued blooming to some degree into late September. They are very pretty plants, both the foliage and the flowers. I subsequently took about a dozen cuttings from the base of the 2 adult plants in late October. The cuttings all survived and are doing nicely.
