description for "Balloon Flower: Platycodon grandiflorus 'Sentimental Blue'"

'Sentimental Blue' is a valuable dwarf newcomer. This heavy bloomer has very large flowers for a plant of its size---about 2" wide. They are upward-facing so their full beauty can be appreciated. Forms a low, neat mound. Easy to grow well. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
