Am I correct that the name of C. medium has changed to C. calycanthema. I grew the variety Two Blues.... and I want to get the Latin name correct. The doubleness of your flower is noted. The 'Two Blues' is single.

No, it hasn't changed. C. medium var. calyanthema is a specific variety of C. medium in which the flower is subtended by a coloured bract, hence the common name "cup and saucer", in which the coloured bract is the "saucer". The plant you show, Aguy, is Campanula medium but not var. calycanthema.
