Wahlenbergia albomarginata

Common name New Zealand bluebell
Family campanulaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-9)
Flowers blue/white (summer)
Size 4-6"
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes well-drained soil

Campanula relative from the South Pacific. Short stems rise above tufts of small leaves, each holding a single light blue and white striped flower. I've found it hard to establish – the few seeds that germinate grow on extremely slowly, and remain weak for a long time.
