Balloon Flower Blue Seeds (Platycodon Grandiflorus Blue) 50+Seeds Zones 4-9
Balloon Flower (Platycodon Grandiflorus Blue) - Easy-to-grow from flower seed, Balloon Flowers are an old-fashioned favorite, and they are as lovely in the garden as they are in the vase. This flower has unique star-shaped blue blossoms, and it blooms late summer and into the fall. Platycodon Grandiflorus has been around forever, and some of their biggest fans are children. They love to watch the balloons form (the buds) and then grow until the right time to pop open and form the lovely star-shaped flower. Balloon Flower plants are very hardy perennials that can withstand periods of drought, and they are rarely bothered by disease or insect problems making them virtually a maintenance-free perennial. Sow Balloon Flower seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before last frost, and transplant outside. This flower seed requires sunlight to germinate, so do not cover the flower seed with soil. Just lightly pat them into the soil so good contact is made and water lightly. You can also sow the flower seed directly outdoors after last frost. Platycodon seed is one of the last perennials to come up in the spring.
