P campanularia is grown all over the country as an annual.  Possibly it would 
self seed in the right conditions, it is a California native needing specific 
pH and very well drained soil.   This was a VitaS/W favorite and written 
about by her often in essays making it well known in Europe.  The down side 
is that after proper siting, germination and bloom, it is gone quickly.  The 
show is very short.  Grows here, zone 4.
