Chillian Bellflower

Also known as Lageria rosacea, named after Napolean Bonapartes wife Josephine (La Pageria), the Chillian bellflower is a wonderful climber. My mother is a plants woman and has always wanted to grow this, but has never been able to find it in any garden centres (in Ireland). So here's one for her that won't die off in the frost :O)

Watercolour on Arches 140lb paper
