Tim, when I see your beautiful bellflowers I realise I have planted too few of them! I have to mend that ;)

Hi Campanula Folks: I'm pretty new here, but have finally gotten the knack of reducing the size of pictures for uploading. So, I have a very low-growing campanula (I assume) that I love, but don't know the name of. Can anyone help me?It's no more than 4cm high, hairy and going out of bloom now, if that's any help. Thanks, Lola .... in hot, hot Brooklyn
Looks like Campanula sartorii to me, but others might have a different opinion.
Have a look at this pic.

Welcome to the forum, Lola!
I don't know that much about campanulas, but if Michael grows it, it must be good!
Such a cute little thing. I imagine the bloom period is cut short by all this heat. Does it normally have a long blooming time?

Thank you, Michael, for your I.D. which, right or wrong, is the one I will use until a better one shows itself. And in answer to Rick, its bloom time is average, I think. Whereas my growing patch of Houstonia caerulea is very long blooming, starting way before the campanula and still going... slightly.
;D ;D ;D
Providing a bit of colour in the warm dry conditions of the last few days ...Campanula carpatica.

Such an enticing shade of medium light blue, a Campanula species no garden should be without, a fine portrait.

Nice one, Dave! Great to have those southern plants and gardens to look at this time of year :) Dry I can sort of relate to (lots of water coming down from the sky here, but at these temps, it is dry!) but warm -outdoors at least- is a vague memory ;)

I'm looking at the sky, it has exactly the same blue shades as your "bluebell", Dave!
