Bluebells-of-Scotland, or Common Harebell, Campanula rotundifolia, is one of the most easily seen flowers in the Olympic mountains. The large flowers are typically light to dark blue, and grow in the open or above other plants. Like Piper’s Bellflower, rare individual plants of this species produce reduced blue pigment or no blue pigment at all, causing their flowers to be very light blue or white. We have occasionally seen double flowers in this species.

The species grows at all elevations on the Olympic Peninsula and from alaska to Oregon.
