This Pasque-flower is
not the most glamorous or widely grown species
of the genus, however I feel it should be more popular
as it is a most attractive plant & is easily
catered for in our Irish climate.
P. campanella comes from the mountains of
Central Asia, found as far east as Siberia &
centrally in Tien Shan & N.W. China.
Growing as high as 4500 m in rocky montane, moraines
and tundra or grassy slopes.
I have grown several colour forms under this name from
wild collected seed; however the form with violet
flowers is most widely seen in cultivation.
