This purple flower was photographed in the garden of an acquaintance and no one seemed to recognize it. Can anyone identify? (Sorry for the weird perspective on the photo, I didn't take it)

Purple flower

  • Check out Campanula latifolia - from the little that can be seen in the photo, that's a strong possibility

This looks like a bellflower (campanula).

Of course this is a rather huge genus, but a more precise ID would require a better photo(s), showing more details like leaves, flower details and overall size and shape.


Depending on its size,(fairly small) I'd say campanula rotundifolia, commonly know in Britain as harebell, found throughout Europe, from the Mediterranean to the Arctic.
