Violet 5-leaved flower, shaped like a "trumpet".
Found it at the brink of the forest.
hey Ursula! I really admire your curiosity :D ! after checking your new pictures, I don't think it's belladonna anymore . . but I'm not sure if it's Campanula trachelium . . so good luck
Hey Omar! I couldn't rest because of this plant, so I went back to see it again. I've noticed, that these round shaped leaves are from another plant, because it was hiding in bushes. So I've taken picture of leaves-maybe it's not the best, but you can see that it has pointy shaped leaves and red stem! Plus I've discovered closed flower as well. Must note that it has hairy flower and around it, if it helps ... What do you think?
hey ursula . . I think Campanula has a serrated leaf margin while this one is smooth . . so according to the shape of the leaves I think it may be a belladonna . . the flower is too confusing
Hey Omar! You got it pretty good, but I'm not sure that's it. It's true, it resembles it quite a lot, but i think the color and the stamens are not the same. Though I really got sick yesterday after I've touched it, so ... Maybe it's more similar to Campanula trachelium? Any suggestions what's this flower really called?
