Campanula cochlearifolia

Campanula cochlearifolia is one of the most attractive and obliging of the small Campanulas. It forms tidy creeping mats of small green leaves, with a generous display of neat little pixie-hat flowers on thin wiry stems. Equally happy on a rock garden or in a trough. As well as shades of blue, there are varieties with white flowers, and also a double form.
