A Park High Performer! With the Astra series comes a whole new era in Balloon Flowers, with so many improvements you won't believe you're growing the same species! Higher germination rates, better branching, more blooms, richer color, and better staying power are just the highlights of Astra's merits! Grow this beautiful perennial for yourself this season and discover just how easy and attractive Balloon Flowers can be!

The good news begins the moment you plant the seeds. Unlike earlier varieties, Astra boasts a whopping 90% germination rate, so you get more plants from every packet of seeds. And such lovely plants they are -- compact yet well-branched, reaching 6 to 12 inches high, 6 to 8 inches wide, and just begging to be placed in your best flowerpots, windowboxes, and hanging baskets! Tolerant of full sun or light shade, they grow quickly and are wonderfully consistent across the series for bloomtime and height.

And then the flowers arrive! A full 3 inches across, they sport thicker petals than older Balloon Flower varieties, which help them stay fresh and attractive even longer. And because the plant is so densely-branched, you can expect a bumper crop of blooms every summer! The flowers begin with the first warm weather and don't quit till fall, blooming continuously (rather than in waves) for months! This mix gives you all 5 Astra colors in one economical packet (or you may purchase any of them separately) -- single blue, pink, white, plus semi-double blue and lavender! Zones 4-9. Pkt is 20 seeds.

Superior Germination Through Superior Science

Park's Superior Seeds Park Seed's humidity- and temperature-controlled seed storage vault Park Seed offers some of the highest-quality vegetable and flower seeds available in the industry, and there are a number of reasons for this.

First of all, we have humidity- and temperature-controlled storage, and we never treat any of our seeds with chemicals or pesticides. Nor do we ever sell GMO's (genetically modified seeds), so you always know the products you're buying from us are natural as well as safe for you and the environment.

Superior Standards - University Inspected

Testing seeds against minimum germination standards To make sure we are providing the best seed product possible and that our customers will get the highest number of seedlings from every packet, we conduct our own germination testing and have quality-control measures in every stage of our seed-handling operation. We hold ourselves to standards that are at or above federal and state standards, including testing specific crops more frequently than recommended by federal guidelines. And in order to maintain our organic certification, we welcome Clemson University to inspect us annually to make sure our organic seeds, which are stored and processed separately, are being handled properly.

Hand Packed By Experienced Technicians

Park Seed has been handling and packing vegetable and flower seeds for 145 years, a history that has given us a great understanding of how each variety should be cared for and maintained throughout every step of theprocess, from collection to shipping.

When packing our seeds, the majority are actually done by hand (with extreme care!), and we often over-pack them, so you're receiving more than the stated quantity.

The Park Seed Gold Standard

Park Seed's exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil seed packets And many of our seeds are packed in our exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil packets, which are lined to keep moisture out, so the seeds stay fresher for longer. We carefully pack very tiny or fragile seeds in crush-proof vials to ensure safe delivery to your home. Some of the small seeds are also offered as "pellets" (have a clay coating) to make sowing and growing easier.

When it comes to the kinds of seeds we offer, we are constantly seeking something new and provide many unique and hard-to-find varieties from all around the world. Our on-staff horticulturists are ready and available to share their expertise to help you with the success of these seeds, so you can grow a beautiful and productive garden!
