I like to say thanks to you both for your answers, I thought of campanula but the leaves are not the same and the stem on campanula have hair looking little things on them the flower on this is more delicate as well.

If the leave was the same them I would go for owdboggy's reply and that is the campanula trachelium this is the closet but owdboddy take a closer look at my leaves and that of any campanula?

Cheers both of you

happy gardening

Try looking at the pictures on this site, Sherlris.
A common name for this campanula is Nettle-Leaf Campanula as well as Canterbury Bells. The flowers can come in blue and white.

Hello Owwdoddy & Bulbaholic,

Just heard the Gardeners World Editor and my Campanula is the Variety named Campanula latiflora var alba i knew sort of guess that it was part of the Campanula Family but knew it was a different Variety than most.

So at least know I know for 100% I will not forget now.

Cheers Guys
