Astra Blue Balloon Flower

They came as big healthy plants with buds on them. They bloomed within a couple of days of being in the ground. They are beautiful.

Astra Semi-Double Blue Platycodon Plant

These beautiful blue Balloon flowers are such a nice contrast to the pink ones I planted all around them, that I also got from GrowJoy. Thank You! Nancy Gebhardt
