There are very few rules in gardening, but perhaps the most important one is to work within your zone. Choosing plants that grow and thrive in your particular climate is the very first step toward having a beautiful garden. Learn more >

Spherical in habit, like a balloon when in full bloom! Striking deep blue flowers are a welcome addition to any perennial border or wildlife garden. Highly fragrant, rich green foliage has silvery undersides. Vigorous and highly adaptable. Deciduous; may die back to the ground colder regions, re-sprouting in spring.

Blue Balloon
by Bill Phillips, March 27, 2018

Plant wilted and looked stressed from the day I received it. Paid almost $50.00. the leaves fell off with in a month. I cut it back this spring and hoping for the best. Beautiful as it is in the photos, beware this plant.

I shopped months to find and finally ordered and purchased six plants from my local nursery. Three of six had to be exchanged. It's now September and I've yet to see a bloom. The plants get the required light and water. I've fertilized! I'll cut back this winter and keep my fingers crossed for next year.
