Campanula incurva


Bellflower - white                                                                                                    καμπανούλα

 
 

This rare white campanula is found in rocky places and on roadside. The shiny, bright  green, heart shaped leaves appear in late summer becoming longer and darker as they get older, developing reddish brown patches. They form a rosette from which  flowering stalks radiate. On Skopelos the flowers are mainly white but occasionally of palest mauve. The white flower buds with five green sepals are arranged alternately in leaf axils, the more distal flowers opening first. Five pure white petals are fused to form a bell shape which narrows slightly before flaring out.  There are 5 free stamens and central tripartite stigma.
