They tolerate exposed mountainsides and sand-dunes, acid heaths to chalk downland, flowering in summer through to late autumn. Small round basal leaves and wirey flower stems to 30cm hold the delicate sky-blue bell flowers. popular with bumble bees. Named the county flower of Yorkshire in 2002 and is said to help with depression, earache and sore eyes.
