Campanula is a medium blue which I had not seen before. The flowers are rounded (not droopy) and not especially distinguished in form, but the poise and placing were excellent on a clump in the Buttrick garden, and seen against the background of the Concord River it was most attractive. [Dolman, John Jr., Pennsylvania (1951), From Aldan to Walden and Points North, Varieties Noted in 1951, American Iris Society Bulletin 123(October 1951), 16.]
Of course, the first thing I saw in this garden was Campanula. It is a mid-blue with well closed standards and rather drooping falls, a long flower but very blue and attractive. [Reynolds, Mrs. Leo F., Tennessee (1949). Coming Events Cast Their Shadows, American Iris Society Bulletin 116(January 1950), 27.]
