Platycodon grandiflorus - The name ‘Balloon Flower’ comes from the buds which swell up like a balloon then burst open to reveal graceful star-like blooms. A herbaceous perennial, they will disappear each Winter but re-emerge in Spring.
Native to China and Japan where the tender leaves are often used as a salad vegetable. The name derives from the greek ‘platys’, broad and ‘kodon’, bell.
