Positive Todd_Boland On Nov 29, 2004, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

There are four very similar species of bellflowers that hail from the Caucasus. In the trade, they are hopelessly confused. They include C. aucheri, C. bellidifolia, C. saxifraga and C. tridentata. If you can obtain any, then you will have a great rock garden bellflower. All produce a rounded dome of leaves topped with large deep blue to blue-violet upward-facing bells that will literally cover the entire plant. They do best in scree conditions and they appreciate lime on a regular basis.
