The Platycodon 'Shell Pink Balloon Flower',Platycodon grandiflorum, is a low growing perennial with light pink 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. 'Shell Pink' should be planted in full sun in a well-drained soil. Use 'Shell Pink' 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
