Symphyandras are just like Campanulas, separated on a botanical technicality, but just as good. (The stamens are joined together, to make a tube that surrounds the style.) There are tall ones and small ones, mostly liking gritty, well-drained sites in full sun. Some will grow on dry walls. Symphyandra zangezura is particularly effective for us grown in this way.

Campanula hofmannii has branching stems, with creamy-white flowers at the tip of every branch. It is usually biennial.
