The plants I grew from seed labeled as this species turned out to be the omnipresent Campanula rapunculoides. Perhaps I'll grow the real thing sometime...
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...

|Paula S.||May 07, 2013||I'm confused, does it spread invasively, or a light spreader. Will deadheading help to stop spread? Thanks |
Mine do not spread by roots, which makes them infinitely preferable to such thugs as Campanula rapunculoides. But they do seed themselves around, so some maintenance is required to keep them in check. All of this of course with the caveat that I don't know which species I actually have here.
|Don Galbreath||Apr 28, 2015||This too looks like Campanula rapunculoides to me. Most plants distributed as various Adenophora species in North America (with the exception of A. triphylla and A. tashiroi) are actually C. rapunculoides. This campanula spreads underground only slowly, but self-sowing is troublesome, and it's impossible to get rid of without using herbicide. |
