Thanks Prashant ji fot the PLANT.
I was surprised, as I saw the foto. Here we see a balloon blume (ballon flower) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platycodon_grandiflorus
which looks totally different from yours. and Asclepias physocarpa is really balloonplant. So I am learning plant and flower are not the same.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful plant with the beautiful flower.
Regards
Nalini
