Platycodon grandiflorus, also known as balloon flowers, are a delightful perennial that are perfect for planting at the front of garden borders or patio pots and containers. Their beautiful blue-violet flowers open in a star-like formation against lance-shaped green deciduous foliage. Super hardy, they flower from June through to September and reach a mature height of 40cm. We recommend planting in sunny locations in well-drained, fertile loam soil where they will thrive. First grade loose roots supplied.
