    I think it is the bluebell flower. Campanula Rotundifolia

  3. Angelyn says:

    Joyce, you are correct. This is Tall bellflower (Campanulastrum americanum). The flower’s style which extends well beyond the petals is one of its distinguishing characteristics. Josey, your guess was a good “runner-up” possibility.
