In N. America, this ladybells is often confused with creeping bellflower (Campanula rapunculoides). The following can be used to tell the difference:

1) Flowers white or pale blue.
2) The style extends long beyond the rim of the bell.
3) Flowers in a panicle (branched), not a raceme (unbranched).
4) The lobes divide the bell only slightly---in the bellflower, between the lobes the bell is split about half its length.
