Double Blue Balloon Flower

This beautiful and quaint balloon flower quietly opened up in my garden this week. Look at the way it is opening up, first the outer petals, while the inner petals will stay closed like a balloon and then few days later the inner petals will burst open. The scientific name is Platycodon 'Double Blue'


  1. I just bought three of these plants yesterday.
    I love them! Cool pic. I also loved your
    fireworks pics in an earlier post.

  2. Thanks Penny. I can't believe that it bloomed for me !!!
