The Platycodon 'Sentimental Blue Balloon Flower', Platycodon grandiflorum, is a low growing perennial with blue, balloon like flowers that bloom in late May until August. (The flowers should be deadheaded to increase bloom time.) The blooms puff up before opening and have a wonderful green foliage. With a plant spread of 8-12" and a height of 8", it is one that should be in every perennial garden.'Sentimental Blue' should be planted in full sun in a well-drained area. Use 'Sentimental Blue' as a cut flower, as a border in a perennial garden or with Cerastium 'Snow in Summer'. Platycodon is pest resistant and needs very little care. It is late to come up in the spring, so make sure to mark its location.
Scientific Name : Platycodon grandiflorum
