Harebell (Campanula rotundifolia)

This delicate creeping perennial has few basal leaves and the bell shaped flowers hang from long slender stems which move with the breeze.  It is found on dry grassland, in open woods and sandy soils over most of Europe, flowering from June to October.  Folk lore has it that witches collected the juice from harebells to turn themselves into Hares!
