Campanula patula-spreading bellflower picture

This delicate, purplish blue wildflower is the Campanula patula or spreading bellflower. It is a biennial plant occurring in meadows and pastures throughout much of Europe and parts of Asia.

Campanula patula can be 50-60 cm high bearing very thin lateral branches with upright, funnel shaped flowers at their end.

Unlike other bellflowers, spreading bellflower has more separate, spread out and pointed petals. That's where its name comes from.
