Synthyris missurica var. stellata
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.
Synthyris missurica var. stellata is a clump-forming evergreen woodlander, with glossy heart-shaped leaves and spikes of violet-blue flowers. Known as Western mountain kittentails in its native NW USA.
