Saving Love in a Puff Seed

Love in a Puff, also known as Balloon Vine or Heartseed, is an annual vine that carries seed in ‘puffs’ and looks great in arrangements. The vine can be grown on a trellis but I just had mine out in the flower field this year and it did fine. IMG_0069You can see it here in one of my favorite arrangements from this year. It’s very delicate and whimsical. It adds an light-airy feel to any bouquet. IMG_9116IMG_8996I purchased my seeds from Floret Flowers in the spring but will be saving my own seed going forward.

You can save Love in a Puff seed by waiting for the balloons or puffs to turn brown. Each puff will have three seeds inside, all with a white heart on them (hence ‘love’).
