    Phyteuma Overview

    A genus of 26 accepted species of tufted herbaceous perennial flowering plants in the Campanulaceae family originating from Europe and Morocco. They have simple, sometimes toothed basal leaves that become smaller and narrower further up the stem. Commonly known as rampion, they are grown for their terminal clusters of curious spiky flowers in shades of purple, pale blue, white or pink and do best in a container or alpine house with protection from winter wet.
