Description Delicate, white to pale blue, bell-shaped flowers adorn this 4-15 in. perennial. The tubular flowers have strongly reflexed lobes that reveal the stamens and style. Lower leaves are round and toothed, becoming progressively more elongate to linear up the stem. The flowers occur several per loose cluster. The plant stems are weak so the entire plant tends to bend over.
