The Chinese Balloon Flower is a great, perennial shrub for the cottage garden and every flower bed. It's not indigenous here but originates from East Asia. There, the attractive flower has a long tradition as a medicinal plant and belongs to the
important agents of the Traditional Chinese Medicin (TMC). Especially its turnip-like roots are used as a remedy, against respiratory problems and for the regulation of blood sugar and cholesterol. In Western medicine, however, the Balloon Flower doesn't play a part as a remedy.

The shrub belongs to the deep-rooted plants and forms the typical taproot. Planted into the flower bed once, it shouldn't be replanted again. It loves porous, humous locations in the sun to medium shade and shows the very decorative, thick and bloated-looking blue buds already from the beginning of June. In the shrub bed, later, the bellflowers gracefully and elegantly stick up their heads and are true eye candy. As the shrub strongly retracts in winter, it should be planted next to early flowering spring flowers to avoid an unpicturesque gap in the bed. The Balloon Flower is also suitable as a cut flower for the vase and also likes a seat in the rockery or as a pot plant on the terrace.
