Balloon Flowers

June 15, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

A few year ago I purchased four small balloon flowers from Homestead Gardens. Every year I have been harvesting the seeds and spreading them throughout my flower beds. Now I end up with hundreds of balloon flowers and lots of pretty blue flowers throughout. They go nicely with the orange, yellows, pinks in my garden.

Here are a couple of images to show you why they are called balloon flowers. They look just like a balloon until they pop open.

Here are several images of them after they open.
