Balloon Vine (Cardiospermum Halicacabum) 20 seeds (#1610)

Balloon-vine was originally indigenous to the Bermudas, Florida and Texas. Nowadays it grows extensively in India, Africa and South America, Mediterranean. It is regarded as a rampaging weed here. Balloon-vine is cultivated in Switzerland and in southern Germany in wine-growing regions. It is not a hardy plant. Is likely to be cut down by frost, if so pull and compost. May overwinter in very mild areas.
Lately it became popular across the world as the annual or perennial, growing up to 2,50 m, and fast covering fences and pergolas. Flowers from July to the frost.
The plant is easy to grow. Prefers any moist, well-drained soil in full sun. Will require a structure on which to climb.
