I believe this is the dwarf Bellflower, "Birch Hybrid", mislabeled from the nursery but not unwelcome at all. I expected the much taller and larger blooms of the "Hakone Blue" Balloon Flower - but not so. I only added them (x 2) last year to the front garden, but am just seeing the blooms now. Definitely not the double balloons of blue, but I just love them. The delicate little blue/purple flowers tuck in and out of the one of the Astilbes, ferns, and hostas - and make up some of the many (many) blue blooms of the front garden.
