Positive Todd_Boland On Nov 30, 2004, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

This is a very different bellflower. First, it comes from a tap-root therefore cannot be divided...it must be grown from seed. The leaves are smooth and shiny and form a rosette. the stems reach to 8" but trail along the ground. Large pale pink to white bells are produced in July. The edges of the flowers have long hairs, somewhat like those of the bearded bellflower, B. barbata. Very different but an overall easy plant to grow. It is native to Armenia.
