From wikipedia:

The Harebell (Campanula rotundifolia) is a short to medium, slender, hairless perennial. The root leaves are roundish and wither early. The leaves on the stem are linear, the upper ones being unstalked. The flowers are blue, 15 mm long and on long thin stalks and in loose clusters. The petal lobes are short. Harebells flower between July and October and are found on dry grassland and heaths in Britain and throughout Northern Europe. In Scotland, it was often known in the past as the Bluebell, whereas elsewhere, "bluebell" is used for Hyacinthoides non-scriptus.

In Roman catholic communities, the Harebell is dedicated to Saint Dominic.
