PLATYCODON Hakone Blue/White

PLATYCODON (Balloon Flower)Hakone Blue Or White
Light:Full Sun-Light Shade
Flowering Time: Summer
Zone 3

PLATYCODON are long lived, long blooming and pest free, balloon flowers are true low maintenance perennials. Plants are late to emerge in spring so take care not to accidentally dig them out or mash them under foot. Large, inflated buds that always remind me of miniature hot air balloons open to reveal 2-3in. wide, five petaled flowers that are a gorgeous bright blue or white colour and double in form. Begins blooming from July and goes to mid August. Try combining with Catmint, Daylilies,Phlox and Ornamental Grasses.
