Spreading Bellflower

Your life is a reflection of your soul.

The answer you planted into the first of thirty plant beds in the Dijksgracht park, part of the Twijfel Zaaien/Raising Doubts project.

Latin name: Campanula patula
Artist family: Romantic
Colour: Purple

Where was this made?:

The flower is native to temperate parts of Europe and widely naturalised elsewhere. It easily grows in meadows, banks, open woodland, clearings, roadside verges and fallow fields. It's a very delicate, but at the same time, rough wild flower that doesn't support any rules or boundaries. It definitely lives the life which reflects its soul.
