Harebells

About 300 species of bellflowers and harebells can be found throughout the northern hemisphere, growing in riverbeds, woodlands and moors from Siberia to California. Harebells belong to the bellflower (or Campanulaceae) family of plants, which includes the popular kikyo, or balloon flower, one of Japan’s seven flowers of autumn which I am growing and will post when they bloom. The Japanese harebell is tough, endures exposure to sun, wind and cold.
