Description
Balloon flower.

Platycodon grandiflorus 'Blue' is a species of perennial flowering plant. These species are commonly referred to as platycodon, Chinese (Japanese) bellflower or simply balloon flower. It is native to East Asia and bears big blue flowers (some cultivars have white and pink flowers). In Korea, white flowers are more common. The root of this species (radix platycodi) is used extensively in Asia as an anti-inflammatory in the treatment of coughs and colds. In Korea the root is a popular ingredient in salads and traditional herbal cooking. Chinese bellflower is used in traditional Chinese medicine. The plant is also a popular garden ornamental.
