This is my Balloon Flower, in full bud. The flower will be a bright blue. I just love how the flower buds form before they open. This will be the 3rd year in my garden for this plant. This is the one that I thought had died over the summer last year. I did not realize that they have a sort of tuber root and dug it up when getting the ground ready last year. I actually cut in almost in half. I moved it and just re-planted it and the thing grew and bloomed last year. This year, I had a marker for where it was. Not too long ago I noted I had another Balloon Flower plant not too far away from the mother plant. It must have been a small piece of the one I cut in half, which did not bloom last year.
