    This plants grows along my garage.
    The roots of the 10 plants are connected together and in a line. Each plant has multiply flowers and are boxed shaped until they open.
    If more pictures are needed or info just let me know
    Thanks

    Bellflower, I think. Welcome, Scott, from coastal Carolina. Make yourself comfortable here and keep sending photos of pretty flowers - we love them.

    Platycodon grandiflora. It also comes in pink and white and there is a dwarf blue one called P.c. Apoyama. For anyone growing it, mark the spot, it comes up later than you think and it does down soon after flowering.
