The Balloon Flower

The upper specimen shows the form of the flower Just before opening, from which the name is derived. It will be seen that the balloon-shape entirely disappears when the blossom has opened, as in the lower figure. This specimen shows the single row of petals characterizing the variety with which Mr. Burbank's experiments began.
