Balloon Flowers: A Favorite Blue Bloom

Balloon flowers, also known as platycodon grandiflorus, are nothing short of amazing in their blooming habit. First a small whitish bulb appears, developing into what indeed looks a balloon turning color. I love the blue variety because really blue flowers are not very common. Hints of purple do show through as the blooms age and begin to fade, but the lovely blue is a joy to see. In our area the flowers come back year after year and I like to plant them with red wave petunias for the 4th of July. Platycodon are truly interesting little plants.
