They also come in white

Bluebell-of-Scotland

Bluebell-of-Scotland ~ Campanula rotundifolia

While it’s not exactly rare, I have seldom seen this white version, and I especially liked the three phases of the blossom on one stem.

  1. I love finding white versions of flowers that generally are other colors, like blue or pink. Steve Schwartzman said that in his experience, it’s the pinks, blues, and purples that more often show this white variation. It really is beautiful, and you were lucky to find the bud, the bloom, and the turn toward seed all on the same stem. Imagine my surprise when I went over to wildflowers.org to see if it grows here, and found your photo on the page!

    • Yes, I think Steve’s right about that. I can recall seeing only a few, and one was blue and two were purple.
      I’ve had that happen to me too. They have a large number of my photos on that site. I can think of no better use for them.

    • I do too. It’s often possibly with this plant because it has a very long blooming season. It starts in mid-summer and lasts nearly until the snow flies.

    • It was fun to see that, on a high mountain trail at that.
