The Bluebells (Campanula rapunculoides)

Though now common in the wild throughout, this particular variety of bluebell is a garden escapee and is alien to Nova Scotia. The rapunculoides is to be compared with the native variety, the Hare Bell (rotundifolia). The flowers of the two are very similar, except rapunculoides cluster up on an erect terminal spike; the flower of the rotundifolia is single on a frail little stem.
