Balloon Flower

Platycodon grandiflorus. Balloon Flower has large round flowers that look just like balloons before they bloom. Yet once open, they are graceful, saucer-shaped stars. Balloon Flower can be direct-sown outdoors or started indoors 4 to 8 weeks for transplant out after the last spring frost date. Well-worth the wait, Balloon Flower will not flower until the second season but when it does flower, stand back! Its heavily flower-laden stems make perfect cutting flowers. They should be cut when 2 to 3 flowers open on an individual stem. Flame-sear each stem's cut-end before placing them in water to prevent wilting. Deer resistant. Perennial. Hardiness zone: 3-8. Summer flowering. Height: 18" to 24".

Average seed life: 2 to 3 years.

Florist Blue Balloon Flower

When a variety has been specifically bred for the professional florists’ market, you know it is the best for bouquets, and Florist Blue is also among the best for display gardens. It is a ravishing shade of cornflower-blue with an iridescent, almost lavender sheen, and intricate, darker blue veins. We are as drawn to it in the garden as we are in the vase. It is one of our very favorites. HZ: 3-8.
