Nettle-leaved bellflower, Campanula trachelium, is a perennial plant that grows on lush bottom in forest and scrub along fences. The plant is known for its blue, bell-shaped flowers and vertical, sharp-edged rhizome bearing coarse serrated leaves. The lower leaves are heart-shaped, while the upper leaves are oval or lanceolate. The flowers are violet blue and sit individually or 2-3 in the corners of the other stem leaves, which form a cluster-like top.
The Nettle-leaved bellflower is a rigid herb whose fruit is a nodding, hairy capsule. The plant belongs naturally to North Africa, the Middle East and Europe.
The species is found in Denmark in light shade and on nutrient-rich soil, however primarily in the eastern part of Denmark.
The Nettle-leaved bellflower blooms in July-August.
