Saw this plant, does any one know what it is
It could be a Platycodon, the balloon flower.
Yes it is - I've got loads popping into flower
Please can anyone tell me what this is There is a row of them in my little flower garden .They're tall and spindly. I have had to support them on canes.
Nikunj I have these balloon flowers ,they are a lovely blue ,yours look white though don`t they , They are a Chinese flower and very pretty
Hi herbgarden, your plants are allium sphaerocephalon...they are spindly and tall, when mine seed I move them into the middle of a bed again to prop themselves up on other plants
Thank you Victoria Sponge . I think I bought the seed and sowed it last year but for once hadn't kept the packetj. Thhis is a small border and they can be propped up on some growing gladiolas but most are coming up near the front so I have had to stake them they are pretty amongst other flowers and have you noticed how cold the stems are?
Mine are all still green but once they turn the bees will be all over them. They seed a lot but I don't find them weedy, they are one of my favourite alliums.
I hadn't noticed the coolness of the stem, I compared it to some of my other 'tubey' plants, I'll hazard a guess at water content? Not sure, enjoy them anyway
