Description

We love to use lobelia in container collections like our True Blue Pot Collection. Pretty indigo blue flowers, each with a small white eye, to tumble out of pots and window boxes. Good in the garden as a traditional bedding plant too.

Care Tips

All lobelias prefer moist soil but they can be tricky to keep going from year to year, especially in dry soils or after cold winters. Keep an alert eye for slugs as they will be drawn to young fresh growth.
