Did you grow this from seed? Platycodons are particularly nice that they are perennials that will usually bloom the first year from seed.

Actually, not this one Dave, but I have grown them from seed in the past. It's been so long ago that I can't remember if it bloomed the first year? Guess I should keep notes on such things. Smiling

It's been 10 years since I've grown these and the variety I grew was blue.

Mine were blue as well. It could have been that long for me too! I do remember I winter sowed them.
