Balloon Flower- Tall Blue

Platycodon grandiflorus

  • Perennial to 50cm

Herbaceous perennial to 50cm. Upright compact dark green foliage which produces an abundance of large blue to purple star-shaped flowers throughout late spring and summer.

In temperate and cool climates the foliage will die back entirely over winter months and re-shoot from the base in late spring. Also known as "Chinese bell flower". Has a history of medicinal and culinary uses.
