DESCRIPTION AND CULTURE: This stunning balloon shaped flower opening to a periwinkle blue star graces upright, glossy foliage on a 15” perennial plant. This is a fine addition to any perennial border. It is a stroll stopper! Platycodon likes good, rich garden soil and responds well to fertile conditions.
PART USED: The root is dug after the second or third season. Fortunately you can harvest some of the root, divide the plant and re-plant a portion to keep this plant around for years to come.
FUNCTION: The Doctrine of Signatures ( a system of observing plants to discover their uses) shines true by observing the flowers as they expand into balloons. The root is a classic Chinese herbal support for a healthy lung function.
