  • Characteristics: Large round buds, star shaped flowers, tall stems and blue-green foliage make these plants a striking addition to any garden.
  • Growth and Spread: Ultimate height and spread of up to 0.5m.
  • Care and Maintenance: Platycodon is relatively easy to care for and doesn’t require much TLC to look good. Deadhead spent blooms to encourage more flowering or leave them be to promote seed propagation. Cut back towards the end of autumn to afford room for new growth in spring and mulch over winter to protect against low temperatures.
  • Period of Interest: Fresh foliage emerges in spring followed by large round buds. These blossom into flowers in summer and last through the autumn months.
  • Top Tip: Once established, Platycodon doesn’t like to be moved around so choose your spot carefully.

Platycodon will brighten up your garden and is an eye-catching feature plant suitable to be grown in the ground as well as in containers. This pack contains 3 plants in white, pink and blue for maximum colour and a striking effect.

Also known as Balloon Flower because of its large round buds, Platycodon is a compact perennial with a clump forming habit. It is ideal for borders, flower beds or rock gardens and works well in pots and containers.

Blue-green foliage grows up tall stems where the buds blossom into pretty star-shaped flowers in summer, adding a burst of colour to your outdoor space until late in the season. The lance-shaped leaves are serrated and complement the flowers beautifully.

Balloon Flower flourishes best when planted in full sun or partial shade. It prefers loamy soil that is moist but well-drained.

Its long lasting flowers ensure Playcodon is popular among flower arrangers, who recommend cutting stems with the bud intact. This means the blooms can be enjoyed for longer as the buds blossom into flowers. Milky sap resides inside the stems so be sure to singe the bottom for prolonged flowering and to prevent leaking into the water.

Please Note: When purchasing plants please consider that each live item is unique and may therefore differ from the images shown, which are for illustration purposes only - The plant will be supplied in a growers pot. Depending on season, some plants may be pruned back to encourage growth and deciduous plants may arrive without leaves.
