Bellflower

Family

(Campanulaceae)

Flowers in the Bellflower family are perfect flowers with 5 lobes, making them starshaped. Bellfowers have very long corollas that extend from the sepals to the lobes. Bellflowers have very long carpels, (the female reproductive organs), that extend to the end of the flower. We only have one flower in this family the Creeping Bellflower, but there are up to 300 that grow in our area. This family is subdivided into two different sub-families, Campanuloideae and Lobelioideae. The Creeping Bellflower is part of the Campanuloideae sub-family.
