Gardeners' Notes:

Very pretty, but it reseeds much too aggressively in my garden. I am still pulling up baby plants every spring and summer after I planted one 3 years ago.

The foliage is fresh and pretty when the plant is not in bloom, and the flowers are lovely and unusual. It self-sows in my garden.

Very nice Campanula, great flowers for butterflies and hummingbirds. Very pretty clear blue outfacing bell shaped flowers on up to 3 ft. stalks late spring thru summer. Clumps up nicely in 2-3 years.
