Astra Semi-Double Pink Platycodon Plant

I planted these pretty pink Balloon Flowers all around the blue ones I also got from GrowJoy. Thank You for such healthy plants! Nancy Gebhardt

My new favorite perennial

I first planted a purple balloon plant about 5 years ago on the side of the pool along the stairs. It got along very well with the salvia as a neighbor as well as smaller residents of that flower bed. Later in the season a friend asked if he could get a cutting for his home. I separated a pair of stems. His was planted and to this day still has that plant, It needs little care such as weed pulling and covering w/a sheet if temps drop too low for any length of time. It naturalizes wonderfully, and I never have to water, once the plant is established. I again have one planted in one of my 20 new flower beds and it just bloomed.
