Blue Balloon

    Newer Older

    The balloon flower (Platycodon) belongs to the family Campanulaceae. The buds distend before flowering, that makes the name. My bud is about rising, the first petal stretches already.

    Die Ballonblume gehört zu den Glockenblumengewächsen. Die Knospen blähen sich vor der Blüte ballonartig auf, daher der Name. Meine Knospe ist kurz vor dem Aufgehen, das erste Blütenblatt streckt sich schon aus.
