Not a great showing in the harsh conditions of this crevice garden by Campanula seraglio:

Campanulas are among my favorites too! However I tend to like those that I can grow "wild". Here is C. glomerata growing "wild" at our summerhouse. I once collected a rhizome at the roadverge. Now it covers several square meters ;D

A self-sown C. xcarpatica (I assume), softening the edges of the Opuntia trough... I suspect some hanky-panky between my C. carpatica ex. 'Blue Clips' and C. xcarpatica 'Samantha' (second photo), in creating that more open-faced flower...
 

Symphyandra hofmannii.... now Campanula hofmannii, apparently.

C. xcarpatica 'Thor Pedo':

I thought Samantha was an annual?
Is the suspect hybrid perennial?

One of our Chapter members has a dead ringer for Campanula wanneri, but it is totally perennial for 5 years so far.  So we suspect it might be a hybrid too.

No, 'Samantha' is a perennial.  This patent (not for 'Samantha', but for the similar 'Royal Wave') claims that 'Samantha' is a hybrid of Campanula 'Pseudoraineri' (itself a hybrid of C. raineri and C. carpatica) and C. carpatica. It also claims that 'Samantha' is a sterile hybrid... I find it hard to believe any Campanula might be sterile!

Yes, the plant by the trough is perennial too.

C. persicifolia "Moerheimii':

Interesting... could you show a photo of it?

Campanula barbata is most often a biennial but the plants I have are in their 6th year now.  Edit:  Correction - 5th year.

This was a few years ago that I saw it, but I knew I photographed it and here it is.  Okay, not exactly a dead ringer as I remember.  As you say, interesting nonetheless.  Any thoughts?
