Balloon Flowers

Balloon flowers are one of those plants that are a lot of fun for kids. The buds looks like hot air balloons and when you snap them between your fingers, they make a popping sound. The little ones love it!

I've had these in my front garden for years with little to no maintenance. They just keep coming back year after year as beautiful as the year before and are totally non-invasive.

Some balloon flowers from my garden:


  1. I have these growing in my backyard and they are one of my favourite plants.

    1. They are one of my favorites too! I like that they bloom for at least a month. Mine are in my front yard, but I've been thinking about planting some in my backyard as well. :)
