Description

Distinctive balloon-shaped buds and cooling colours step up your cutting garden game.
A native of East Asia, this clump-forming herbaceous perennial is hard to beat for the cutting garden, borders and containers. Blue flower buds puff up like balloons before opening, hence the name, then exhibit five-pointed lobes with a bell-like shape. Remove spent flowers to prolong bloom period. Exceptionally long vase life.Platycodon grandiflorus
