Platycodon grandiflorus with captivating balloon-like flower buds

Platycodon grandiflorus

It was love at first sight when we first saw it at one of the garden nurseries along Jalan Sungai Buloh in Selangor.

Their beautiful five-petaled, star-shaped flowers and balloon-like flower buds enthralled us so. Absolutely a wonder to behold!

Moreover we noticed that there were two differently coloured varieties in one of the pots for sale and we grabbed that without hesitation sometime late November, 2013. Our plants appear to be the dwarf type.

A very hardy and reliable flowering plant that keeps blooming happily in ideal conditions, in our tropical country, Malaysia which has everlasting summers.
