Hi,
This plant appears to have been misidentified. Neither the flowers nor the leaves match Campanula chamissonis. It appears from the flat, open-faced flowers and leaf shape to be more likely one of the Campanula carpatica hybrids, as a guess.

Is there a "general" Campanula entry that this misidentified photo can be moved to? I looked but didn't find one.

Good catch, Lori! I took the photo at the Philly Flower Show and didn't question the ID on the display tag.
I'm learning to dance in the rain. Thank you, Sally & Chris.

Zuzu has moved it the "Bellflowers" entry (which, despite being the common name for Campanula spp., doesn't seem to link to the word Campanula, as it doesn't come up in a search of "Campanula"... Confused )

If you click on the word "Campanula" at the top of any Campanula entry, you'll find a link to the generic page for the genus. That page is called Bellflowers.
