We found this Harebell at 1,976 meters in the Kopaonik National Park. The Harebell is found in the Northern Hemisphere throughout the world and in the US it is known as the “bluebell.” The petals are fused in the shape of a bell. I learned in my research that the flower is dedicated to the Catholic saint Dominic, the founder of the Dominican order of the Church.
