Another variety of the Harebell is said to be the flower of witches,

who used its juice as part of their flying ointment. The Harebell is believed to have an

association with the witches who could transform themselves into hares.  It is also associated

with seeing fairies, goblins and earth spirits.  Clumps of this prairie flower were

once thought to offer shelter to the fairies.
