A slender and tall perennial with lavender or blue flowers appearing in the summer and covering the upper stem. In the wild it occurs in rich, moist woods or thickets, making it a great choice for a shady garden or rain garden. Flowers are flatter than those of its relative, Harebell, but are just as attractive to hummingbirds. This plant can behave as an annual or biennial. As a biennial, it will alternately bloom one year and produce a basal rosette the other. As an annual, it will bloom yearly. Will self-sow easily.
We also sell Harebell, a shorter flower with different requirements.
