Platycodon Grandiflorus Astra Pink
Platycodon grandiflorus Astra Pink bears striking pink-veined bell-shaped single flowers. Also known as Chinese bellflower.
The development of the buds into flowers is fascinating to watch, as the buds grow into large balloon shapes and then burst forth in to lovely long lasting saucer shaped flowers.
Perfect for rock gardens! If planted in a sheltered position these beauties will reappear again next year.
