Heads-up! Our Annual Photo contest will be open for entries this Thursday the 18th!

SOLVED: A campanula type, maybe??

Olympia, WA

I looked at the .jpgs for Campanula, and didn't find anything quite like this one. I find it easily reseeds by just sprinkling contents of old capsules into the soil, so I mixed them into a newly planted bed of daylilies. Wonderful color contrast - same bloom time. In any event, I have yet to learn its name - maybe someone here can help with it.

Looks like Lady Bells (Adenophora). Be warned... we call them "Hell's Bells" around here.

Thanks so much - looks like that's it, alright!!!! Hell's Bells - eh???? Well, for now they are behaving like ladies - but the ease with which they have seeded in, I can see where in a limited space, one might think otherwise.......

Continued appreciation from me to thee for your help!

I control them by pulling up after first bloom and get a second bloom in the fall,I also keep them out of the main bed-they do well in bouquets.

oh that's so pretty!!! I need several hundred of those in my yard. :)

I don't want to list this in the seed exchange, but if there are folks who seriously want some, I can certainly gather them aplenty!!!!!!! It is a nice color, and I don't recall seeing that plant around these parts, nor was the name given by Poppy Sue at all familiar to me.....so Adenophora confusa is now part of the lexicon!! My bro, who is a gardening nut, is due in from Indiana for a visit within a week - and I will be interested to see if he knows it w/o being told.

I am also thinking about starting some seeds in pots for our Master Gardener Plant Sale next spring - or will folks just laugh about this one??? I really don't know.

Thanks again - and let me know if you want seeds - send via email rather than posting, as I don't get back here nearly as often as I would like.

Very Pretty. I am very interested in a seed swap or sase. I love campanula this year and I have been trying to collect them all. This is one I don't have.

wannadanc, my sister had some of these growing (in Indiana). They were beautiful.
