Cardiospermum halicacabum (Love in a Puff) [12 Seeds]

(1 customer review)


Germination Information: You could start these seeds in pots indoors (1/4 to 1/2 inch deep) in mid- to late spring, then set the seedlings outdoors after all danger of frost has passed. The vines grow so quickly, however, that I usually sow the seeds outdoors in late spring, right at the base of whatever I want them to grow on. Though the vine is annual, it’s not unusual to find it coming up in the same area the following year (from self-sown seedlings).

Love in a puff (Cardiospermum halicacabum), also known as balloon vine, is a charming, easy-to-grow climber with lacy, bright green leaves and an abundance of tiny white flowers that develop into green, balloon-like seedpods. Within each seedpod are round black seeds, each marked with a white heart. The slender stems cling with dainty tendrils, so they’re best on some kind of mesh or wire support. They’ll readily climb to 10 feet or more, if they can; on a shorter support, the shoot tips will eventually cascade back toward the ground. If you want some splashes of color amid all of the green, consider planting a morning glory on the same support.

2021-collected seeds sold out. I expect to collect again in late summer and fall of 2022. At least 12 seeds.

Cannot ship to AL, AR, GA, SC, or TX.
