Neutral Todd_Boland On Nov 28, 2004, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

This tiny biennial bellflower is a native of Greece. The first year the plant produces a rosette about 2-4" across. The next, it produces prostrate stems (to 6" long) studded with small creamy-white flowers. Nice in an alpine trough but can get lost in the open rockery. Allow it to self-seed to keep the plant going.
