Hi, I'm hoping some knowledgeable person out there might be able to help me by providing a name for this flower....

Fabulous, thank you very much. To me it will now always be known as Eric!

You don't happen to know what this one is do you?

Looks like some kind of Lily.

How big are they? What are the leaves like? My first reaction was lilies (and there are a gazillion varieties) but the shape is reminiscent of campanula.

I saw the stamens seemed a bit short for lilies and too big for campanula and had a rare brainwave: Three cornered garlic?

I think you're right in saying it's campanula. It is a small plant, too small to be a lily.

So once again many thanks, Jude

No not Eric.
More like Penelope.

But definitely Astrantia. A girly plant.

The garlic looks pretty though. A man-style plant with go-faster stripe.
