(Under construction)
This is a big family of widely varying perennials. I have not started to explore them seriously yet; others than sowing some seeds for fillers and a few chance acquisitions. Part of the reason is, of the few I have tried, some of them are very aggressive runners or seeders. As a country gardener, I need to optimize my time spent doing ‘control chores’. What I need is to spend some effort identifying the well behaved tribes.
The identities of the ampanulas I described here may or may not be correct (since I was not particularly diligent in tracking them).

Campanula ‘Dickson’s Gold’

A beautiful compact ground cover plant.

Campanula ‘Pink Octopus’

An interesting and pretty bell flower. It likes to run wild with runners. I tried to keep it in a buried pot since I like it enough not to remove it from my garden.

Campanula carpatica-white

Campanula chamissonis

Campanula rotundifolia?

It is dainty and flowers very well, but it seeded around so badly I destroyed it.

Campanula takeismana?

I sowed this from seed many years ago to use it as a filler. It is invasive with runners. I am trying to control it by limiting it to certain beds as a filler.
