Lobelia is an attractive, regal flowering perennial, with large, broad leaves and tall stalks of brilliantly coloured flowers. They are eye-catching, while still being a classic fixture in gardens. It can enhance the beauty of your other perennials, or be its own centrepiece with its colours. A good border plant, especially for creeks and ponds as they are water loving. They begin to bloom in the mid-summer, until the end of the fall.
Care is rather easy, as it is for many perennials. They love full sun, but will tolerate partial shade. They prefer moist and rich soil. During dry, hot periods in the summer, they should be watered more frequently to maintain soil moisture, as they don’t like to dry out.
