Campanula rotundifolia: seeds

[Photo: seeds of Campanula rotundifolia (harebell).]Campanula rotundifolia, known in English as harebell, Scottish harebell, or bluebells of Scotland, and in French as campanule à feuilles rondes, is a herbaceous perennial native to northern parts of the world.

This is my first year growing harebell. I ordered seeds from Wildflower Farm, an Ontario nursury specializing in native plants, little suspecting how tiny the seeds would be. I believe "dust-like" is the most apt description. They were difficult to work with, but if I get some beautiful harebells it will be more than worth it.
