Description / Komachi Balloon Flower Seeds

The most exotic Balloon Flower yet, Komachi resembles a mass of blue umbrellas seen from above, something like Renoir's famous painting Les Parapluies. They look for all the world like huge, unopened buds, with neatly-drawn seams around each petal and a puffed-up, light-as-air form. The compact plants reach 18 inches tall in the garden, sporting a mixture of small green balloons and larger blue at the same time. An eye-catching and beautiful display!

As colorful as an annual, Platycodon is actually quite hardy and long-lived, increasing the length of its bloomtime for several years after becoming established in the garden. Excellent for garden or vase, they flourish in the sunny garden. Pkt is 25 seeds.

Customer Reviews

Review by MS
We bought a packet of seeds in (believe it or not) in 2010. They were still going strong when we moved away in 2023. Now we will be starting over at our new home. The best things about Komanchi are they are tall and upright and the balloons last longer before opening.
Great plant
Review by Daniel
Seeds were sown in February and like the Astra Pink that I purchased, they took about 4 weeks to germinated. However, the put size on more quickly than the Astra Pink did once I bumped them up from plug trays to 4.5" pots. Once planted in the ground, the plants adapted quickly. Some plants are blooming already and plants are more floppy than the Astra Pink plants that I have in my garden.
Superb for bouquets & border
Review by Cheryl Beamer (A gardener in northern VA and the Finger Lakes)
I started Komachi from seed 8-years ago and my plants are still going strong. It is a good 'blue' that is hard to achieve in the garden - especially from mid-summer to fall. It is long lasting in the vase. Its season of bloom takes it well past other perennials. Komachi is not invasive but will politely re-seed itself at a rate much like digitalis (foxglove). Tall enough to be a spectacular companion with oriental lilies - but rarely needs staking.
