Afternoon all, 
Does someone know the name of this plant please. Also can you keep the seeds when dead headed. Does it come back every year. Thank you for your help.

    Platycodon - balloon flower.
    It's perennial so should come back next year. You could save seeds and sow them. There will be info on when on the RHS site
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    I've had them in my garden for about 10 years.
    They do self seed a bit and though the originals were all blue, I've got a few pink ones too now

    Billericay - Essex
