Campanula incurva (Grecian Bellflower) is a little-known bellflower that is best suited to the sunny rock garden, or for edging in a well-drained border. Plants form a low rosette of grey-green leaves, bearing arching stems of large soft lavender-blue bells in late spring. Not a long-lived perennial, this should be allowed to set seed after blooming, as plants most often perform as biennials. They grow best in full sun in average to sandy soils and average moisture. They bloom in late spring to early summer and have a very slow growth rate. They are difficult to find but the search is worth it!
