Balloon Flower

Platycodon grandiflorum

Perennial, (Zone 3)

Full to Part Sun

Blooms June to August

30”-40” Tall

Plant 12”-18” apart


These are fantastic cut flowers, whose blooms just so happen to resemble inflated balloons about to pop. They are also deer resistant and can handle partial shade, and deadheading will encourage longer bloom times. Avoid wet soils, where the balloon flower gets bogged down  fails to thrive.
