Exposure Balloon-flowerSole pieno
The Balloon-flower should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero. These plants lose the aerial part during the coldest months of the year. As spring begins, stems and leaves quickly start to reproduce.The Balloon-flower should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight.

Generalities Balloon-flower
The Balloon-flower is a perennial herb plant. The Balloon-flower is small in size and 45 cm in height; in the summer it assumes a purple colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. These plants grow covering the whole land at their disposal.

Fertilization Balloon-flower
We suggest adding to the irrigation water, in the spring, every 20-25 days, a specific fertilizer for flowering plants. We can also mix to the soil near the plants a granular slow release fertilizer, which has a 3-4 month action.

Watering Balloon-flowerTenere asciutto
Water rarely, about once every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. Perennial plants are subject to some months of vegetational rest. During these months it isn't necessary to water them.

Treatments Balloon-flower
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Soil Balloon-flower
We suggest a substratum characterized by an excellent drainage.
