Derivation of the botanical name:
Campanula is diminutive of Late Latin campāna, bell (New Latin: a little bell),
glomerata, glomeratus, "clustered", meaning: to gather into a ball.
  • The standard author abbreviation L. is used to indicate Carl Linnaeus (1707 – 1778), a Swedish botanist, physician, and zoologist, the father of modern taxonomy.
