Canterbury Bell

(Campanula medium) The name, of course, is taken from the bells of Canterbury Cathedral, so this plant was used as their emblem by Chaucer's pilgrims (Genders. 1976). Or perhaps the name came about from the bells carried by their horses (Radford & Radford). But it is also called Coventry Bell. Strangely, it is an unlucky plant in the Weald of Kent. If you pick them from your garden, it will toll the death-bell in the village. On the other hand, if it grows well in the garden, it will be a lucky one (Radford & Radford).
