Plant Details: Great Blue Lobelia
5 - 7
Great Blue Lobelia
This species is found mostly in the mountainous region of the Eastern US. It is a favorite with hummingbirds and butterflies like species the(cardinalis)Cardinal flower. Light shade and will grow in rich soils with consistently moist but, not wet soils. It has blue spikes from mid summer to late fall. Great blue lobelia has slightly smaller flowers than does species cardinalis. Not as common in the trade as cardinalis but, deserves a spot in the garden. reseeds fairly well. NOTE: Do not allow the rosette of foliage to become cover in fall by fallen leaves. The rosette needs full exposure all winter to survive. Considered a short lived perennial dividing evry fall or spring is recommended.
We expect to have the quart size available Spring 2010.
