Tall Campanula

Does anyone know the name of this Campanula in my garden? I thought it may have been Chimney Bellflower, but not sure or Ladybells? What do you think?

Well, that was quick, thanks Bamboo! It is nice isn't it Sid, especially when they've all opened. I do like the one you've just got too...super bells on that!

Just luck Janey - happened to log on just as you put the question up :-)

There must be lots of different types, its not the Brantwood, you don't think its Ladybells Bamboo?

22 Jun, 2009

 

Well I might, if I knew what Ladybells was! Could be C. latifolia "Gloaming" from the colour, though if the flowers are held on branching heads, it might be C. lactiflora, but I don't think it is.
I'm slightly puzzled as to why the advert on the right of your question is for Ugg boots - can't see the connection between them and your question for the life of me!

Ive had a look at the latifolia Bamboo and the bells are different and hang differently.....I've found a plant onthe internet called Adenophora or Ladybells and it resembles it mostly, the leaf too.......many thanks though....:o)

Crikey....don't know, theres and advert of Ebay on now!

It does seem a bit late for Campanula . Thanks for the name Adenophora, I shall look it up with great interest.

I think its Adenophora Confusa, Bamboo....certainly has confused us..Lol!

I don't know that I'm convinced - it seems adenophora flowers appear in "late summer" and it isn't too late for C. latifolia, they flower "midsummer". You reckon its late summer now? I suppose it could be.
Just checked out Google pic in the States - it looks like yours, but it's a month early - it usually flowers in late July/August; I'm still confusa!

No...no...its only early Summer isn't it....the flowers on the latifolia were different and they grew straight out from the stem whereas these hang down....mucha confusa!!...:o)

i'd have gone for lactiflora. Adenaphora bullyana flowers july august apparently.

Mmmmm.......not the lactiflora or Milky Bellflower, it has a different growth habit.....the mystery deepens.....Lol!
