A little Beauty I’ve found in Hungary in 2008


Campanula persicifolia or Peach-leaved Bellflower is a plant species of the genus Campanula. It can be almost one meter high. Its flowers are cup-shaped and can be either lilac-blue or white. Its foliage is narrow and glossy with a bright green appearance.
From Hungary Nature
It is common in the Alps and other mountains in Europe. It grows at lower altitudes in the north, and higher up further south, passing 1,500 m in Provence. It flowers normally in June; a dry summer may reduce or inhibit its flowering.
