Campanula persicifolia or Kurjenkello (in Finnish), sent by Tuula from Helsinki.
This is from Wikipedia : Campanula persicifolia or Peach-leaved Bellflower is a plant species of the genus Campanula.
Its flowers are cup-shaped and can be either lilac-blue or white.
Its foliage is narrow and glossy with a bright green appearance.
It is common in the Alps and other mountains in Europe. It grows at lower altitudes in the north, and higher up further south, passing 1,500 m in Provence.
It flowers normally in June; a dry summer may reduce or inhibit its flowering.
