Set B2 - Wild Flowers - card information

19. Harebell
(Campanula rotundifolia L.)

19. Harebell

This is the bluebell of Scotland - a totally different plant from the bluebell of England, the wild hyacinth. Both are found all over Britain. The harebell is a very slender perennial, growing on dry commons and downs, where it flowers during the late summer. The name "rotundifolia" (round-leaved ) refers to the small basal leaves, often hidden in the grass and easily overlooked. The more obvious stem leaves are quite narrow.
