'Camp Bule' has narrower leaf blades with sparser pubescence on the upper side than 'Camp Trailbule'. The position of the sepals relative to the flower is clasping for 'Camp Bule' while it is horizontal with incurving tips for the reference varieties. 'Camp Bule' has a smaller flower diameter than 'Blue Uniform' and 'Camp Trailbule'. The flower length for 'Camp Bule' is shorter than that of 'Blue Uniform' and longer than that of 'Royal Wave'.

Origin & Breeding History: 'Camp Bule' was developed as part of a planned pedigree breeding program by the breeder, Pim Kaagman, of Goldsmith Seeds Europe B.V., in Andijk, The Netherlands. It originated from a cross between a Campanula isophylla line designated 'CR-37-2' as the female parent and an unnamed Campanula cochlearifolia plant as the male parent made in May 1995. The resultant seed was sown in a greenhouse in February 1996. 'Camp Bule' was selected in July 1996 based on its' flower shape, flower size and plant growth habit.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Camp Bule' were conducted in a poly-house during the summer of 2007 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of fifteen (15) plants per variety. All plants with the exception of 'Blue Uniform' were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 11.5 cm pots on April 30, 2007. The plants of 'Blue Uniform' were grown from seed. Observations and measurements were taken from ten (10) plants or parts of plants from July 6 to 9, 2007. All colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
