Succulent Iwugumi has grown in well. Shame I think frost will destroy the dragon stone

Still in the dark about picture not loading, but plant ID as a Patycdon or Balloon Flower. Bought two today one white and one blue, £2 each. Sorry about the two duff postings.Can any one ID this house/garden plant. Friend found it on a tip and potted it on. The flower is approx 1'' or 25mm for younger viewers. Thanks in advance. Hope picture has posted. If not could be in post below.
The snails munched the three I bought on the night after I planted them. Bought two more, same happenedbut plant ID as a Platycdon or Balloon Flower. Bought two today one white and one blue, £2 each.
Sorry about snails, I use chemicals/throw them over the hedge. The root system on the Balloon flowers is robust. Have some concerns about being invasive. Time will tell. The price was low and in my defense I was left unsupervised.Campanula relatives have a pretty short life with me.
Always thought the Englisch common name for it was less in your face. Since it looks like a Butterfly and it fruits with Legumes and actual peas in it.. But now you mention it.. It speaks to imagination.. Have to admit, its the reason i wanted to grow it so badly in the first place.. Having a laugh..Well, I guess if anyone could get it to grow and flower it'd be you Marcel. Aptly named as well...
Yes it gong indoors in the winter.. It will hang here under the dome.Take it inside for winter?
That is and likely will stay a dream for ever.. I wish i had. And if i had it would be like walking into a jungle with a pond in it.Maybe you are better of with a greenhouse/conservatory to move everything there during winter
