Thank you, Greg and Christine! As I understand it, the Platycodon Grandiflorus is a species of the family Campanulaceae and may also be called Chinese, Japanese, or Korean Bellflowers.

I agree with Greg. Another stunner! I always know which ones are yours, they have the stamp of an utter nature lover, who takes delight in sharing his joy. :) Would they also be called campanulas?
