Campanula parryi (Harebell)
Campanulaceae (Bellflower Family)
Montane, subalpine. Meadows. Summer, fall.
This Harebell is relatively uncommon in our area so it is a delight to find. Its flowers are larger than those of Campanula rotundifolia, they range from light to bright purple, and they are either upright or slightly nodding at the end of the stem.
The family and genus names, Campanulaceae and Campanula are derived from the Latin, "campan", "bell".
