I bought this at Monticello in Charlottesville VA.  It has multiplied and returns each year.  I went back there & they couldn't identify it from photos

green_thumbalina writes: Quite sure it is bellflower judging by buds, agree with peachleaf comment. Balloon flowers have distictive balloon buds which rules that one out! Posted: 8:59 am on September 1st
Rosecobb writes: This is definitely Campanula persicifolia- the lanceate leaves are a give-away Posted: 1:57 pm on August 28th
Poinsettia writes: Both varieties do have five petals but neither usually has such lanceolate leaves. It would be helpful to have a picture taken directly of the inside of a flower, but I would vote for a Campanula. Posted: 4:24 pm on August 26th
Plant_Paradise writes: This plant is Campanula persicifolia 'Alba' or commonly known as Peach-leaved bellflower. The foliage is low and the bloom stems rise up above the foliage. Posted: 8:27 pm on August 25th
Kgardens writes: It definitely looks like the balloon flower. My blue one is flowering in my garden now and the bud is exactly the same. Posted: 12:29 pm on August 25th
