Campanula persicifolia   Peach-leaved Bellflower I

Campanula persicifolia white Campanula persicifolia blue

This European introduction is a favourite of old English gardens and has now escaped successfully into the wild. It is quite common in England, not uncommon in Scotland and Wales but hasn't really established a foothold in Ireland yet.

The commonest colour is the pale blue but the white variety is seen occasionally and both have the almost linear leaves which can be seen on the white flowered plant.
