Product Description

LOBELIA: Spires of colorful hood-like flowers on stately spikes in late summer and fall. Likes moist soil. Will naturalize alond ditches and streams. Butterflies and hummingbirds like them too! The perennial Lobelias have upright spikes of large flowers, not at all like the more familiar trailing types grown in hanging baskets. They are terrific plants for the boggy garden, adapting well to ‘wet feet', but growing equally well under average conditions. This selection has a compact, bushy habit, bearing deep burgundy-red flowers through late summer and fall, over a clump of bronzy-red leaves. Excellent for using as a specimen or massing in the border, containers or tubs. Nice for cutting. Attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds. Fiery cardinal-red flower spikes bloom on strong stems over deep purple foliage on full, well branched plants, making this a truly outstanding perennial selection. Blooming from late summer into fall, this native plant features tubular flowers that are irresistible to hummingbirds and butterflies. Grows well in wet soils, at the edge of a pond or stream, in the border or containers, and is particularly effective when massed.
