Love in a Puff

Cardiospermum halicacabum

Also known as Balloon Vine and Heartseed, this fast growing 10 tall annual uses tendrils to tightly wrap around any point of contact like a fence, trellis or mailbox.. The green tri-part foliage is complemented by petite white flowers. The flowers give way to showy papery green inflated seed pods resembling balloons or lanterns. When the balloons are popped, each contains three black seeds with a white heart embossed or tattooed on it.

Happy Valentine's Day!
