Common Harebell Overview

Campanula rotundifolia is a perennial species that has a clumping growth habit and produces two types of leaf. Like other Campanulas, it has basal rounded foliage and narrower leaves on slim, erect stems higher up. Flowers are dark purple or white, bell-shaped, hang from branched stalks and appear in summer. Known by many other common names including Harebell and Common Harebell, Campanula rotundifolia is native to the temperate Northern Hemisphere where it can be found growing in the wild where it often spreads via underground runners and attracts pollinators.
