This native bellflower has particularly large, beautiful, bell-shaped flowers and therefore should be in every garden. It has a clump-forming and upright habit. Varied flowering shoots appear in June and July above the lanceolate, heart-shaped, pointed, lush green foliage. Its pure white single flowers can grow up 24 inches.

This plant prefers loose, rich, well- drained, relatively nutrient-rich, even calcareous soils and loves sunny to semi-shady locations. It performs especially well in perennial beds, mixed borders and natural plantings as well as near shrubs. In good soil conditions it even grows under sparse treetops. However, it partially dies back in very dry summers.
