Wow……. Beautiful flower of Campanula latifolia

Had seen the purple one but never the white colour

Campanula latifolia f. alba, but then at present not considered enough for recognition of a distinct taxon.

While going through the species of Campanula in our database eFI I noticed that Campanula latifolia is not represented; therefore adding a picture of it.
Campanula latifolia L. is a tall perennial wild herb in 2500-3400m altitude in Uttarakhand.
It blooms during June-August here and looks beautiful.

Yes … your plant is much different from my “Platycodon” as is also excellent photograph on Flowers of India.

This tall Campanula was recorded from Valley of Flowers in Uttrakhand..
Campanula latifolia

Yes the most graceful and robust Campanula in Uttarakhand. A delight to watch when in full bloom.

Majestic views …

Welcome to flora of Himachal. My apologies for joining this episode late…
Campanula latifolia from Great Himalayan National Park (GHNP), District Kullu [Alt. 3000 m asl], a very prominent herb of alpine meadows.
Am happy to share that GHNP has been inscribed by UNESCO in June 2014 as World Heritage Site for its unique floral and faunal components.

Thanks Sir. This species is indeed a photographer’s delight at higher altitudes…

Excellent images … I missed a chance to visit the area this summer.. hopefully I will be able to explore in future, great site indeed..

Here with images taken by the Late Krishan Lal at some 2300-2400m Haripurdhar, H.P.
The ‘Large Bellflower’ is described and illustrated in ‘Flowers of the Himalaya’.  Known from forests & shrubberies @ 2100-3000m from Pakistan to Central Nepal.
Stewart recorded this as common in Kashmir, so surprising there have been no images posted from there.  2700-3700m. He also found it in Suru.
It is not recorded in the most up-to-date check-list for Ladakh (Kilmes & Dickore).
Flora of Lahaul-Spiti recorded it as common on moist slopes at Sissu.
Flora Simlensis recorded it from woods at Huttoo.
Roy Lancaster recorded this from Dachigam.
‘Plants of Gulmarg’ (Naqshi, Singh & Koul) record it among shrubs and moist places at Gulmarg.
Flowers of Himalaya describe the flower colour as dark blue-purple but Mrs Suri, former Proprietor of P.Kohli & Co., knew a white form from Gulmarg.
My team found it north of Pahlgam during the 1983 Kashmir Botanical Expedition.
It is found in the UK in woods and hedgebanks – widely distributed but local in Great Britain.

Thanks a lot, … efi page on Campanula latifolia

For some inexplicable reason, I missed the entry for C.latifolia – consisting of many postings!
So Krishan’s images were not of a species new to efI.
