Campanula persicifolia-Peach-leaved Bellflower

Campanula persicifolia - Peach-leaved Bellflower is a classic beauty flowering in June.
The tall bellflower produces large white cup-shaped flowers on slender stems.
As they like moist, they are very happy after the long period of rainy days and they are blooming everywhere, even on the road, near the sidewalk.
Bellflowers vary in size, shape, and plant form but are usually white and various shades of blue, lavender.
The botanical name for this perennial, campanula, is from the Latin word for bell and refers to the shape of the flowers.

"The garden's silence: even the single bee
Persisting in his toil, suddenly stopped,
And where he hid you only could surmise
By some campanula chalice set a-swing.
Who stammered--"Yes, I love you?"

-Robert Browning
(1812-1889)
