This is what the first bud of the balloon flower looks like.
It then turns a blue color. I think the bud resembles a
hot air balloon, no doubt the reason for the name balloon
flower. I have many of these plants in my flower garden
in front of the house and also around what used to be a fish
pond, but now is a rock garden. The picture below is what
the flower looks like when in full bloom. When they come
to seed I take and scatter the seed around and get more
plants that come up in the spring.
