Botanical name: Campanula medium 'Calycanthema' Family: Campanulaceae (Bell flower family)

Cup and Saucer Bellflower is an interesting form of Canterbury Bells. Each bellflower along the stem is considerably larger than the already large blooms on regular Canterbury Bells, plus there are broad sepals under the "cup" that are the same color as the cup. These sepals form a "saucer," hence the name "Cup and Saucer Bellflower". It is a biennial herb, cultivated in colder parts of India. Plants form a low rosette of green leaves in the first year. In the following summer, upright stems will bear loads of large dangling bells. It was earlier considered to be Campanula medium var. calycanthema. The name calycanthema means having sepals similar to petals.
