Campanula rotundifolia (Scottish Harebell, Bluebells of Scotland)
Campanula rotundifolia is the perfect example of a showy flower that doesn't have to be tall and grandiose to make itself known in the garden. Scottish Bluebells have an exquisite, almost understated, beauty all their own. Growing from six to 12 inches from rosettes of rounded leaves, they surprise with blue/violet or white nodding bells atop wiry stems. Campanula rotundifolia is not invasive (drat that word), despite stories to the contrary by those who may have it confused with another Campanula. Full sun to partial shade in Zones 3-9. This Campanula likes it a little on the dry side. Note: The flowering stems look quite different from the foliage below, so don't mistake them for weeds and pull them out. It's been known to happen!
